The Cleveland Browns released their Wednesday injury report, as the Browns get ready to play host to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 12.

Cornerback Joe Haden, who missed Cleveland's Week 11 contest against the Dallas Cowboys, was limited in Wednesday's practice. Haden is battling an oblique injury, which often linger and can easily be re-aggravated.

Defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin was also limited in Wednesday's practice. Rubin is still battling injuries to his calf and back, which sidelined him for Cleveland's Week 9 and 10 games. Rubin did return in Week 11, recording five tackles and registering one sack in Cleveland's overtime loss.

Wide receiver Josh Cooper was also limited in practice with a knee injury.

Dimitri Patterson, Buster Skrine and Ross Ventrone did not participate in Wednesday's practice, putting their status for Week 12 firmly in doubt.

Luckily for the Browns, the Steelers are also quite banged up, as neither Ben Roethlisberger nor Byron Leftwich will play this weekend. Jerricho Cotchery and Troy Polamalu also missed practice for the Steelers on Wednesday.
