BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Browns cornerback Joe Haden says he can’t worry about whether Lions star wide receiver Calvin Johnson will play Sunday after missing last week’s game with a knee injury.

Haden has to be ready for whatever Detroit might throw at him. And so far this season Haden has been up to every challenge for the Browns (3-2), who will try to extend their winning streak to four games this week.

Johnson was limited in practiced on Friday, but Haden expects the man they call “Megatron” to be on the field.

Haden set a goal to make the Pro Bowl in his fourth NFL season and taped a map of the Hawaiian Islands inside his locker as a reminder.

Browns linebacker D’Qwell Jackson said Haden “is playing phenomenal” and will be surprised if he isn’t picked for the Pro Bowl.
