Description: The Browns cut ties with injured halfback Montario Hardesty on Monday.

Description: Cleveland halfback Montario Hardesty will have his knee scoped on Thursday. SOURCE: Mary Kay Cabot, Cleveland Plain-Dealer
Insight: This comes less than 24 hours after Hardesty was diagnosed with a dislocated thumb. With Hardesty banged up and Dion Lewis outperforming him, Hardesty is unlikely to make the Browns' final 53-man roster.

Description: Browns backup running back Montario Hardesty has been diagnosed with a dislocated thumb.
Insight: The oft-injured Hardesty has fallen behind newcomer Dion Lewis on Cleveland's running back depth chart. Hardesty is likely now battling with Brandon Jackson for a roster spot as Lewis seems to be the handcuff option for starter Trent Richardson.
 
8/7/2013 11:43:00 AM
Description: Browns backup running back Montario Hardesty is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury that may cause him to lose his spot as No. 2.
Insight: The oft-injured Hardesty has fallen behind newcomer Dion Lewis who has looked good in training camp. Hardesty is likely now battling with Brandon Jackson for a roster spot.
 
10/15/2012 2:22:00 PM
Description: Browns backup running back Montario Hardesty replaced injured Trent Richardson (ribs) and rushed for 56 yards and a touchdown against Cincinnati in Week 6.
Insight: Hardesty would be the obvious choice if the rookie can't go next week against Indianapolis.
 
8/25/2012 11:06:00 AM
Description: Browns running back Montario Hardesty started in place of Trent Richardson (knee) again this week, but didn't look good at all and may have lost his spot as the No. 2 guy. He rushed for 12 yards on eight carries and more importantly fumbled for the second week in a row.
Insight: At this point we are not sure whether Hardesty or Brandon Jackson is the correct handcuff, but given the inept Browns offense we suggest you stay away from both of them.
 
8/17/2012 11:28:00 AM
Description: Browns running back Montario Hardesty started in place of Trent Richardson (knee) and rushed for 45 yards on 12 carries, though he did fumble on the opening drive.
Insight: Hardesty, not Brandon Jackson or Chris Ogbonnaya, figures to be the handcuff for Richardson in case his knee injury acts up in the regular season.
 
8/9/2012 2:45:00 PM
Description: According to Fox Sports Ohio, Browns running back Montario Hardesty will get the start in place of Trent Richardson (knee) in the team's first preseason game Friday.
Insight: Hardesty revealed that he developed an infection after his ACL surgery in 2010 and wasn't fully recovered for the start of the 2011 season. He ended up rushing for 3.0 ypc in 2011 but he has "looked quicker and more fluid" in training camp. Hardesty will be a solid handcuff in case Richardson's knee woes turn out to be more serious than anticipated.

Description: Browns running back Montario Hardesty seems to have lost the No. 2 running back spot to Brandon Jackson and may be in in a fight just to make the Browns roster in 2012. SOURCE: Cleveland Plain Dealer
Insight: Hardesty averaged just 3.02 ypc in 2011 and has also battled injuries in his career, missing the entire 2010 season due to a torn ACL.
 
5/23/2012 2:25:00 PM
Description: Browns running back Montario Hardesty is running reps with the first team alongside rookie Trent Richardson.
Insight: Hardesty averaged just 3.02 ypc in 2011 and will likely end up fighting with Brandon Jackson for leftovers. Barring an injury to Richardson or the rookie not being able to protect his quarterback in passing situations, neither Hardesty or Jackson will have much fantasy value in 2012.
