Joe Haden Sent Off Practice Field After 'Issue' With Pat Shurmur

Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden was removed from practice Wednesday by head coach Pat Shurmur for excessive roughness on 7-on-7 drills. According to various reports from practice, Haden took down wide receiver Travis Benjamin, drawing the ire of Shurmur.

Shurmur apologized after practice for directing foul language at Haden while in the earshot of fans and other onlookers. Haden was reportedly followed into Cleveland's practice facility by team president Mike Holmgren, though Holmgren did not speak about the incident with reporters after practice.
