NFL injury report: Browns get healthy in one area, lose players in another

The Cleveland Browns got healthy in one position for Week 11, but left their game against the Cowboys hurting at another one.

The Cleveland Browns got healthy in one area, but following their Week 11 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, they're hurting in another. Defensive tackles Phil Taylor and Ahtyba Rubin played together for the first time this season, as both are fully recovered from injuries (Taylor missed the first eight games of the season, Rubin was banged up the past couple weeks). As such, the defensive line played great.

But the Browns lost cornerback Buster Skrine to a concussion on Sunday, and that prompted quarterback Tony Romo to pick on untested rookie Johnson Bademosi. Romo was able to drive his team for the winning field goal, and the secondary wasn't doing much to help Cleveland at all.

Joe Haden missed the game with an oblique injury, and the Browns haven't been able to do anything in his absence. Haden is arguably the team's best defensive player, so getting him back sooner rather than later is crucial. There were no other significant injuries in the game.
