Browns Injury Report: Joe Haden misses practice with oblique injury

As Daryl Ruiter reports, the hits keep on coming for the Browns-

“Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden has been sidelined with an oblique injury. The severity of the injury, whether or not he will be able to play against the Cowboys Sunday and how long it will keep him out is unknown. Haden was listed as limited Wednesday on the Browns’ injury report but he missed Thursday’s practice.”

Will Burge of ESPN 850 tweeted this following practice-

“Talked to someone who said Joe Haden’s oblique injury is fairly serious, has limited him mightily, but he still plans on playing Sun”

So there you go. Sounds like another tough blow for the defense.

    CB+bad oblique=Big hole in defense

    “Talked to someone…”

    I hope they were associated with the team.

    I’ve literally never heard of someone playing through a bad oblique injury. So either I just don’t listen very well, or Joe Haden is going to miss the game.

    Maybe we get lucky and Buster Skrine grew a few inches during the bye-week.
    Curious when Haden hurt himself – didn’t they just return to practice Wednesday?

  • Garry_Owen

    Does this mean he can only run in straight lines?
    Maybe his pursuit angles are off?

    Or maybe it’s not really an “injury,” per se.
    Either way, someone’s not being straightforward.

    if you are thinking Skrine, then you probably don’t want to look at the injury report.

    Haden, Skrine and Patterson all on it.

  • mgbode

    he’s only being straightforward. remember, he cannot twist with this injury.

  • Garry_Owen

    But that’s what they want you to believe! They’re being deliberately oblique about it.

  • BisonDeleSightings

    I hope this doesn’t hurt his ability to move ladderally.

  • mgbode

    opaque about the oblique? I demand transparency and tranlucency! such attenuation will not be tolerated.

  • Wow

    Great so now he will really get burned by receivers.
