Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden missed practice again Friday with an oblique injury, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot. Haden injured his oblique during practice Wednesday.

The Browns would prefer to have Haden in the lineup when they hit the road to play the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET. With Haden anchoring the secondary, Cleveland is 2-3. Without him, the Browns are 0-4.

Haden missed the first four games of the season while serving a suspension for using Adderall. In five games this season, Haden has 21 tackles, five pass deflections and two interceptions.

Haden, out of Florida, was the seventh-overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. He had an impressive rookie campaign, picking off six passes and recording 50 tackles. He appeared in all 16 games but started just seven.

The Browns head into the weekend with a 2-7 record. The Cowboys are 4-5 after beating the Philadelphia Eagles, 38-23, last weekend.
