The news keeps getting better from Berea as the week rolls on: Now, cornerbacks Joe Haden (oblique) and Buster Skrine (concussion) both say they plan to play on Sunday against the Steelers in Cleveland. Yesterday, Haden remained limited in practice while Skrine improved to being limited after not practicing on Wednesday. Both continued to practice again on Friday. Reports indicated that head coach Pat Shurmur echoed Haden’s sentiments, saying that the star corner should be good to go against Pittsburgh, who will be starting third-string QB Charlie Batch. Fourth cornerback Dmitri Patterson (ankle) did not practice again, however, on Friday. But, Browns fans should rejoice that they’ll have at least their top three corners — including Sheldon Brown — ready for Sunday’s rivalry game when the status of two of those guys was very much up in the air earlier this week.

Johnson Bademosi named Browns’ fourth captain

When Buster Skrine went down with a concussion this past weekend while filling in for Joe Haden, the Browns had to turn to the bench once again.

Bademosi made the team as an undrafted player from Stanford this season because he could play special teams. Now, he’s been named the...
