Bad news for Haden
November 15, 2012 - Mike McLain
BEREA -- Browns cornerback Joe Haden didn't practice Thursday because of an oblique injury, which isn't good news three days before the Browns and Dallas Cowboys play.
Haden was fine coming off the bye week. He talked extensively to reporters last Monday and was anxious about the final seven games.
The severity of the injury isn't known. It could be as simple as a minor muscle pull. However, sometimes teams cover up serious rib injuries by listing them as oblique injuries.
This has been a bad season for Haden, generally considered the best defender on the roster. He played in the season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles but a day later the NFL announced that he had been suspended four games for using the prescription drug Adderall.
The defense can't afford to be without Haden again. The Cowboys are strong across the board in the passing game, led by tight end Jason Witten and receivers Dez Bryant and Miles Austin. Witten has 66 receptions. Bryant is second with 45, and Austin has 43.
