Browns starting cornerback Joe Haden was not at practice because of an oblique injury.
Haden, who was suspended four games by the NFL earlier this season for failing a drug test, was not on the field for the portion of Thursday's practice open to the media. He was limited on Wednesday with an oblique injury but said afterward he expected to play this week at Dallas. The Browns (2-7) can't afford to be without Haden, their top coverage defender who would likely be assigned to Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant.
The Browns went 0-4 without Haden, who has two interceptions and has been credited with breaking up five passes.
Cleveland's secondary is already missing cornerback Dimitri Patterson, who has missed the past four games with a severe ankle injury and hasn't been cleared to practice.

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.

Pat Shurmur spoke to the media following the team’s practice on Wednesday and spoke about rookie QB Brandon Weeden-
(On one aspect of Brandon Weeden’s game that has to improve over the rest of the season)- “Don’t throw interceptions. Done, end of story. I want to be right to the point.”
(On if he worries about Weeden being more tentative after hearing he needs to throw...
The Browns are done with their bye and they’re headed to Dallas. Despite the wishes of some Browns fans, the status is decidedly quo in Berea. Still, the bye week is a good time for teams to get healthy at least, and it appears the Browns just might have done that with Ahtyba Rubin and Phil Taylor being two of the (ahem) biggest beneficiaries.
With that, it’s time to make your predictions.

For Brandon Weeden the Browns 29-year-old rookie quarterback these are the most important games in his professional career. We all know Weeden already failed at a professional career in Major League baseball, now he could be on the verge of failing as a N.F>L. quarterback...
Good news for Browns fans, they did not lose last week. Can they continue this non-losing streak? Doubtful.
After a rough Week 10, I'm sitting at 92-54-1. Who wants to keep track of a tie.
Let's see if I can turn this around this week.

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.
Joe Haden isn’t used to losing. He was a National Champion at the University of Florida and after his junior season, Haden decided to forgo his senior season and entered the NFL Draft. He was selected by the Browns in the first round in 2010. Haden has become one of the few shutdown corners left in the NFL, he’s physical and a tenacious competitor. He’s also itching to be a...
An obviously frustrated Josh Cribbs let loose on the coaching staff and whoever in front of him. He’s clearly not in a good place right now. Cribbs sounded off harshly to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plains Dealer, and didn’t pull any punches.

Browns CEO Joe Banner has spent his first weeks on the job assessing, evaluating and questioning. Soon, he'll start making changes - and some of them could be major.
Banner, who spent 19 seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles before he was hired by new Cleveland owner Jimmy Haslam, said Friday he remains ''open-minded'' about coach Pat Shurmur, whose future with...
If Joe Haden plays against the Dallas Cowboys and he isn’t 100% will that leave the Browns secondary open for a disaster? Having an oblique injury isn’t an easy thing to overcome. If Haden plays and can’t perform up to his abilities it could hurt the Cleveland secondary, then again we already saw how Haden’s absence hurt the Cleveland secondary during his 4 game suspension...

BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- When he was a kid, Browns kicker Phil Dawson worshipped the Dallas Cowboys.
In Texas, it's mandatory.
"Unless you grow up in Houston," Dawson said. "The rest of the state is Cowboys and that's all you did was follow the Cowboys."
And that he did.
Like many boys growing up deep in the heart of the Lone Star state, where football and...

what was hopefully a fruitful bye week. There are still two months left in the
season, and before the depressing NFL draft
discussion really cranks up as it does in Cleveland around
Thanksgiving most every year, what else is there for Browns fans to ponder over
the final seven games?
