Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Joe Haden broke his fibula in his team's 20-17 win over the Colts.

Coach Mike Tomlin said after the game that Haden is out indefinitely.

"Joe Haden has a fibula fracture," Tomlin told ESPN. "It's high on his leg. I don't know what that means."

Haden collided with a Colts offensive player late in the first quarter and was down on the Lucas Oil Stadium turf for a few minutes. Haden walked off the field without a limp and went to the locker room. Veteran Coty Sensabaugh replaced him in the lineup.

Haden left on crutches and told ESPN he would find out more about the injury Sunday night back in Pittsburgh.

Haden signed a three-year, $27 million contract with the Steelers in August, and helped stabilize a much-improved secondary and second-ranked defense. The Steelers' secondary gave up touchdown passes of 60 and 61 yards against Indianapolis after he left the game.

In addition to Sensabaugh, the Steelers can also activate third-round rookie Cam Sutton off injured reserve.
