The Browns might have to face Ben Roethlisberger and leading receiver Antonio Brown Sunday in Pittsburgh without top cornerback Joe Haden.

Haden missed practiced for the third time on Friday with his hip pointer and his status for Sunday's season finale is in doubt. The injury report will be available closer to 12:30 p.m.

Haden first suffered the hip pointer two weeks ago against the Bears and aggravated it at the end of the Jets game last Sunday.

The absence of Haden would be a blow considering that Brown is third in the NFL behind Josh Gordon and Detroit's Calvin Johnson with 1,412 yards and is also third with his 101 receptions. He also has eight TD catches.

In the first meeting, Brown had six catches for 92 yards, including a 41-yard TD catch over Haden.
