After starting the 2015 season 1-2, the Cleveland Browns will travel to San Diego this weekend looking to right a few wrongs from week three's somewhat surprising defeat to the Oakland Raiders.
Unfortunately, the AFC North franchise may have to do so without one of their most influential players.
That's after Joe Haden, the team's Pro Bowl cornerback, was scheduled for an MRI today on a rib injury picked up during Sunday's action.

As reported by Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, Haden is getting checked out today for what is being described as a "rib contusion."
The 26-year-old, who picked up the issue on the very first defensive play as he collided with the helmet of Raiders WR Amari Cooper, is currently being considered as day-to-day for the Browns' trip to the Chargers.
Perhaps as a result of the injury, Haden endured a tough time of it against the Oakland rookie. He conceded 144 yards and 11 catches to Cooper.
Still, with Cleveland hoping to avoid going two games below 500 this early in the season, they can ill afford losing him for what looks to be a crucial match-up.
The severity of Haden's injury won't become clear until the MRI scan results are back but Cleveland fans will certainly have their fingers crossed that the damage done is limited.
Haden was ranked number 23 in the NFL's most recent 'Top 100' list by his fellow players, and consistently goes up against the opposition's top receivers.
If he can't suit up this weekend, that will likely mean more opportunities for San Diego's Keenen Allen.
