Joe Haden, one of the top young cover corners in the league, missed practice Thursday with an oblique muscle injury. He was limited Wednesday after pulling it early in practice. It looks like he will try to play Sunday against the Cowboys, but he's extremely questionable at this point.
This is bad news for a Browns secondary that is already without nickel back Dimitri Patterson, who has missed the past four games with a severe ankle injury and hasn't been cleared to practice.
Not having Haden will hurt Cleveland's chances of containing Cowboys receivers Dez Bryant and Miles Austin. During Haden's four-game suspension this season, the Browns went 0-4 and allowed quarterbacks to complete 66.4 percent of their passes with 10 touchdowns and three interceptions.
