Browns CB Joe Haden is inactive for today's game against the Chargers. The FOX scroll listed him with a finger injury, though his ribs seemed to be a bigger concern coming out of last week's loss to the Raiders. Either way, you'll need to replace him in IDP lineups if you had planned to use him.

The Browns will get LB Karlos Dansby back today against the Panthers after he missed the past 4 games with a knee sprain. It 's tough to know whether the Browns will return him to his full role, though, or whether Dansby's knee will hold up. That makes him a risky IDP play, albeit one with upside. His return also makes it tough to use replacement Craig Robertson, who has delivered strong fantasy numbers in Dansby's absence. Cleveland will be without CB Joe Haden, who's inactive with a shoulder injury.

UPDATE: Dansby will reportedly start in his usual MLB spot, with Robertson starting at weak ILB over Chris Kirksey. We'd lean Robertson as the safest IDP option, with Dansby bringing the highest ceiling.

Browns CB Joe Haden left Sunday's game at Cincinnati in the 1st half with a shoulder injury. The team initially deemed his return questionable but then ruled him out early in the 2nd half. CB Justin Gilbert also left the game with a head injury, leaving depleted a secondary already playing without 4th CB K'Waun Williams and FS Tashaun Gipson.

The Browns surprised viewers by trading back up to 8 after moving down to 9 to select Oklahoma State CB Justin Gilbert.  Evaluators credit the former Cowboy with strong cover skills, though his tackling doesn't match that of former Michigan State CB Darqueze Dennard.  Playing across from Browns CB Joe Haden can only help Gilbert's IDP value.  We'll see if that can push the rookie into drafting range in our 2014 IDP rankings.  His arrival should help the Cleveland pass D and team D in general for fantasy purposes.

Browns CB Joe Haden is inactive against the Steelers today.  He played through a hip pointer in Week 16 but apparently isn't able to go today after missing practice all week.  His absence can only help the Pittsburgh pass offense.

Browns CB Joe Haden is questionable for the 2nd straight week because of a hip pointer.  He missed practice all week but played 74 of the team's 77 defensive snaps in Week 16.  We expect him to face the Steelers in Sunday's finale, but we'll watch for his status when the inactives come out Sunday morning.

10:42am EST 12/22/13

Browns CB Joe Haden (hip) is active and starting against the Jets today.  He said earlier in the week that he didn't want to play unless he was sure he'd help the team.  The injury adds risk, but the ceiling is also high vs. Jets QB Geno Smith.  Use Haden as you normally would in your IDP league.  His presence also helps the Browns' team D.

Browns CB Joe Haden returned for a limited practice Friday after missing the previous 2 days with a hip pointer.  He's questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets.  Matching up with QB Geno Smith carries obvious INT upside, but we'd still consider an active Haden a risky IDP play.

8:32pm EST 12/18/13

Browns CB Joe Haden missed practice Wednesday because of the hip pointer that knocked him out of Sunday's game.  Haden has said he'll only play in Week 16 if he's well enough to help the time -- not be a liability in coverage.  We'll see how he progresses through the week.  A matchup with Jets QB Geno Smith would certainly present turnover upside for your IDP squad.

10:47pm EST 12/15/13

Browns CB Joe Haden left Sunday's loss to Chicago with a hip pointer.  Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that teammates seemed pessimistic about Haden's chances for next week.  We'll see what the team says this week.  Losing 1 of the league's top cover men would obviously hurt the Cleveland pass D ... though nowhere near enough to make us recommend starting Jets QB Geno Smith against the Browns in Week 16.

12:02pm EST 11/18/12

Browns CB Joe Haden will miss today's clash with Dallas because of an oblique injury. That leaves Sheldon Brown and Buster Skrine as the starters. Both are upside plays against a Cowboys offense that likes to throw to its outside WRs. Tony Romo gets at least a slight bump with the absence of the Browns' best cover man. On the plus side, Cleveland will have DT Ahtyba Rubin. He had been questionable with his nagging calf injury. He carries significant upside against a weak Dallas interior O-line.

11:25am EST 11/18/12

Browns CB Joe Haden (oblique) is inactive for today's game against the Cowboys.  It's a huge upgrade for Tony Romo, Miles Austin, and Dez Bryant.  Cleveland was torched through the air without Haden earlier this season.

4:25pm EST 11/16/12

CB Joe Haden will be game-time decision for Sunday. He missed the past 2 days of practice with an oblique injury suffered on Wednesday. Haden carries plenty of upside if he's ready to play the Cowboys. IDP owners hoping to use Haden will obviously need to pay attention to the inactives report.

12:28pm EST 11/16/12

Browns CB Joe Haden injured his oblique on Wednesday and has missed the past 2 days of practice.  The team is calling him a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, but it's not looking good.  If Haden can't go, it'd be a big upgrade for QB Tony Romo and WRs Miles Austin and Dez Bryant.  In the 4 games Haden missed earlier this season, the Browns were torched for 1,134 yards and 10 TDs.

11:35pm EDT 9/10/12

Stop us if you've heard this one before: Browns CB Joe Haden has been suspended 4 games by the league. It's for real this time. The NFL has apparently considered his appeal and everything. Haden reportedly tested positive for Adderall, a substance on the banned list. It's a huge loss for the Browns but an expected loss for many IDP owners with CB -specific lineup spots. If you don't already have a replacement rostered, it shouldn't be hard to find one.
