Browns LCB Joe Haden (injured reserve, concussions) says he dealt with headaches, light sensitivity and was "hidden in his house for a month or two" after suffering his second concussion of the season in Week 8.

That's as scary as it gets with concussions, but Haden has already indicated he plans to return in 2016. Another concussion could end Haden's career.

In a press release, Browns CB Joe Haden (concussions, IR) said doctors have told him to expect a "full recovery."

Haden suffered multiple concussions this season and was unable to clear the protocol more than a month after his latest brain injury. It is a scary situation which had to make Haden consider his long-term health, but it sounds like he plans to continue playing.

Browns placed CB Joe Haden (concussions) on injured reserve, ending his season.

After playing like a true shutdown cornerback in the second half of the 2014 season, Haden was painfully ineffective early in 2015 before suffering multiple concussions. He couldn't pass computer and written tests in order to get medically cleared. It's fair to wonder about Haden's long-term health. The Browns have the 26-year-old under contract for three more seasons at base salaries that are all in excess of $10 million.

Browns coach Mike Pettine said the decision whether or not to place Joe Haden (concussion) and Andrew Hawkins (concussion) on injured reserve is coming soon.

Both players suffered multiple concussions in a short time frame earlier this season. Placing them on injured reserve is the safe thing to do. With the season lost, the decision should be even easier.

Browns coach Mike Pettine said the team has not discussed placing Joe Haden (concussion) on injured reserve but said it could be an option.

Pettine said the same about WR Andrew Hawkins. Haden has played once since Week 5 while dealing with two concussions. Pettine revealed last week Haden had still not passed the written and computer tests which would indicate he is back at his baseline level. Placing Haden on injured reserve might be in the best interest of all involved.
