Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne wants the Browns to throw at him this Sunday.

The Browns are hopeful that Joe Haden will be on the field for the Cowboys to attack. The Browns best cornerback missed practice on Thursday after he injured an oblique muscle in practice on Wednesday. Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Browns have started to make preparations to play without Haden in Dallas if the injury winds up keeping him out of the game.

“When anyone’s down, especially a starter it hurts,” safety T.J. Ward said. “Not having Joe will hurt us but the next guy just has to step up. That’s how it’s been all year. We haven’t had our complete defense on the field at any point this (season) I don’t think. It just seems like everyone’s starting to get back and Joe, I won’t say he went down, but he hasn’t been practicing. Hopefully we can have him this weekend.”

If Haden can’t go, the Browns will likely turn to Sheldon Brown, Buster Skrine and Trevin Wade as they try to stop Dez Bryant, Miles Austin and the rest of the Cowboys passing game. It would be a much easier task if Haden is able to play.

    Let them throw his way & he’ll take it to the endzone. Had a bad rookie day last Sunday who doesn’t in the NFL.

    Actually, nobody throws at Claiborne. They throw at the guy he’s supposed to be covering, and Claiborne isn’t anywhere near him, and that’s the problem.

    Im sorry Cowboy’s fans but I thought we gave up too much for Claiborne. I argued with other Cowboys friends at the time. I’m still hoping I am wrong but he has been below average for where he was picked in the draft this year. Rookie or not, just look at other rookie cornerbacks in the past with his expectations, from Deoin Sanders to Champ Bailey to Derrelle Revis. They showed 20 times more promise than Claiborne has… once again, I hope I am wrong but so far I have not been at all.
