Browns cornerback Joe Haden is inactive for Sunday's game against Dallas with an abdominal injury sustained in practice last week.
Haden is a key piece of a defense that is tied for sixth in the NFL with 10 interceptions. Second-year player Buster Skrine will start opposite Sheldon Brown.
Cleveland defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin is back in the lineup after missing three games with a calf injury.
Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray will miss his fifth straight game with a sprained right foot. He hasn't played since Oct. 14 at Baltimore.
Mackenzy Bernadeau will make his first start at center for Dallas with Phil Costa, Ryan Cook and David Arkin all inactive. Derrick Dockery will slide into Bernadeau's spot at right guard.

T.J. Ward was flagged for 15 costly yards when he hit Kevin Ogletree (and Buster Skrine) on a pass attempt. Here’s another look at it in case you missed it. We’ll have a complete discussion on the rules and whether or not this was a legitimate flag tomorrow morning.

Browns coach Pat Shurmur sounds like a broken record when he talks about his team's broken record.
Once again, Cleveland came up short on Sunday in a 23-20 overtime loss to the Dallas Cowboys, who overcame a 13-point deficit by exploiting the Browns' injury-riddled secondary and taking advantage of 12 penalties, It's a familiar story for the Browns (2-8), who have lost...
Some guys just can’t live without their long hair. I’ve never understood why wide receivers or running backs would want to have long hair, but maybe I just don’t appreciate a good set of dread locks the way I should.

Cleveland Browns CB Joe Haden did not participate in practice on Friday. Haden was injured in practice on Wednesday and sat out Thrusday with the oblique injury.
His status for Sunday’s game is certainly in jeopardy.
Pat Shurmur said that Haden “felt better” today, but they will wait and make a game-time decision on him.

Hero: Dez BryantFor the first time all season, Dez Bryant was able to put up great numbers without having an asterisk attached to his performance (*he dropped three passes, *dropped the game-tying 2-point conversion, *fumbled a punt). Bryant was un-coverable for the Cleveland secondary, finishing the game with 12 catches for 145 yards and a touchdown.Those numbers could have been...
Can it get any worse here in Cleveland?
I was watching another vintage Pat Shurmur-led debacle in Dallas, and all I could do is sit back and laugh. Seriously, how can you even get yourself worked up over this stuff anymore? Every week the Browns hang around just long enough to keep you interested, then fall off a cliff in the end. Spare me the “at least we are competitive” bit...

Browns cornerback Joe Haden was missing from Friday's practice and will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against Dallas.Fantasy Spin:The Browns need Haden to play against all the quality receivers the Cowboys can throw at you. If he doesn't play it adds value to Dez Bryant and Miles Austin.
