Even though he was a late-preseason casualty, former Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden is still on the Cleveland Browns’ tickets Sunday as they host the New York Jets and try to win their first game of the season:
Haden was released by the Browns on Aug. 30 after seven seasons with the team, which included two Pro Bowl nods and a second team All-Pro selection in 2013. The 2010 No. 7 overall pick from Florida was signed to a three-year, $27 million deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers just hours after his release. After the Steelers beat the Browns in Week 1, Haden got the game ball for what was his first Week 1 victory in his pro career.
Melvin Gordon, Los Angeles Chargers, knee, 1:00 p.m. ET: Gordon’s knee has been a topic of conversation since he was added to the Week 3 injury report, and he hasn’t looked particularly sharp the past two weeks, even exiting the game for a period of time in the third week. This week, however, things appear to be looking up. Gordon was a full participant in practice each day and is off the pregame injury report. There is no doubt surrounding his status as the Chargers travel to face the New York Giants.

Jay Ajayi, Miami Dolphins, knee, 1:00 p.m. ET: Ajayi’s practice involvement has varied weekly, perhaps in relation to how his knee is faring. Last week, his practice participation was increased, but it certainly didn’t translate to a percentage of offensive snaps. It appears the Dolphins are trying to find a balance for Ajayi’s role. This week, Ajayi was a full participant except for a day off on Thursday (listed as his customary Thursday off on the team’s official website) and has a favorable matchup against the Titans.
