The Browns will play without their top corner against a potent Cowboys passing game.

David Richard-US PRESSWIRE

Cleveland Browns defensive back Joe Haden is out for Sunday's road game against the Dallas Cowboys at 1 p.m., according to Adam Schefter.

Haden is dealing with an oblique strain. He was expected to test the injury before today's game, but Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Deal reported that Haden was not among the defensive backs warming up in the field before the game for the Browns. The injury occurred during a drill in practice.

Sheldon Brown and Buster Skrine will be the team's starting corners, according to Cabot.

Haden, a first-round pick out of Florida in 2010, is in his third season in the league. He has played in five games this season, recording 27 tackles and two interceptions in those games. Haden has eight career interceptions.

He was suspended for four games this season for violating the league's ban on performance-enhancing drugs. The Cowboys' passing offense is sixth in the league.
