Cleveland Browns' cornerback Joe Haden suffered an oblique injury in practice on Wednesday, and is questionable for the team's game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, according to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal.

Haden was limited on Wednesday after the injury occurred and did not participate at all on Thursday. Still, he might attempt to play through the injury, per Ulrich. However, if Haden is unable to go, he'll be replaced by a combination of Trevin Wade, Sheldon Brown and Buster Skrine.

It has been a tumultuous season for the 23-year-old Haden, who missed the first four games of the season while serving a suspension for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy. Since his return, he has registered 27 tackles and two interceptions. The Browns are 2-3 with Haden on the field, and 0-4 without him.

Kickoff between the Browns and Cowboys is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET on Sunday afternoon. The game will be televised on CBS.
