Browns CB Joe Haden won't play against Cowboys after injuring abdominal muscle in practice

Browns cornerback Joe Haden is inactive for Sunday's game against Dallas with an abdominal injury sustained in practice last week.

Haden is a key piece of a defense that is tied for sixth in the NFL with 10 interceptions. Second-year player Buster Skrine will start opposite Sheldon Brown.

Cleveland defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin is back in the lineup after missing three games with a calf injury.

Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray will miss his fifth straight game with a sprained right foot. He hasn't played since Oct. 14 at Baltimore.

Mackenzy Bernadeau will make his first start at center for Dallas with Phil Costa, Ryan Cook and David Arkin all inactive. Derrick Dockery will slide into Bernadeau's spot at right guard.
