Joe Haden Suspension: Cleveland Cornerback's Comments After Practice

Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden is reportedly facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, with a source stating that he tested positive for Adderall.

After practice on Wednesday, Haden didn't directly comment on the report, but said that he's still Mr. Cleveland, via Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer:

"It's really a league matter," said Haden. "I can't comment on that right now."

...

"Everybody knows who I am," he said. "Honestly, my friends and my family, they know exactly who I am. All the Haden Nation supporters. They know who I am and you can't put up a front. So I'm just going to just keep balling, keep looking forward to the next game and keep doing my thing."

Teams are not permitted to comment on violations of the substance abuse policy, but backup Dimitri Patterson did talk about making the transition to starting.
