Browns' Joe Haden won't play at Dallas
By Jamison Hensley
Browns cornerback Joe Haden won't play Sunday at Dallas because of an oblique muscle injury, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Haden, one of the top young cover corners in the league, was considered a game-time decision after injuring himself in Wednesday's practice. He didn't participate in practice Thursday or Friday.
With Dimitri Patterson out again with an ankle injury, Buster Skrine will start with Sheldon Brown at cornerback. They will look to contain Cowboys wide receivers Dez Bryant and Miles Austin.
This is the fifth game that Haden has missed this season. 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.
