CLEVELAND (AP) -- Browns running back Montario Hardesty underwent arthroscopic knee surgery and will likely miss at least the first two regular-season games. The team said Hardesty's operation "went as expected" on Thursday. Hardesty's football career has been slowed by knee problems. The former second-round draft pick has had the anterior cruciate ligament in both knees repaired. Hardesty missed most of training camp with a hamstring tendon issue and then dislocated his right thumb in practice on Monday while trying to catch a direct snap from center. With Hardesty out of action, Dion Lewis and Brandon Jackson will compete for the backup spot behind starter Trent Richardson. Hardesty rushed for 271 yards last season, his third with Cleveland. He missed his entire rookie season in 2010 after tearing his ACL in the final exhibition game.

Browns streaker gets leveled by security

I find nothing more hilarious than streakers. The whole idea to me is hilarious from beginning to end. What exactly crosses somebody’s mind to take off all of their clothes and run across a sporting event? Arrest and capture is inevitable, and television stations have an unwritten rule to never film you doing it. However, this is where social media comes into play. Thankfully,...

Week 2 (sort of): Cleveland Browns vs. Detroit Lions preview

Week 2. You can almost taste the street hot dogs and feel the quasi-excitement, right? Anyway, the Browns face the Detroit Lions this week in the always important Great Lakes Classic. The Lions are a regular season opponent this year, but, as always, the preseason game against them is a huge deal for both the organization and the fans. Alright, that’s all the sarcasm I can muster...

Predict the Cleveland Browns win / loss record for 2013

Pete Prisco thinks the Browns will go 4-12. So while I don’t love the exercise of going through and putting Ws and Ls across the schedule, maybe if we all do it together it will mean something. Put your most realistic soundtrack on in the background and let us know what you think the Browns are capable of this season. Don’t let your heart get too far in front of your head and...

Browns rookie Mingo hospitalized

Browns rookie linebacker Barkevious Mingo has been hospitalized with a bruised lung. Mingo, the No. 6 overall pick in April's NFL draft from LSU, was injured in the first half of Cleveland's 24-6 victory over Detroit on Thursday. The team initially said Mingo had a rib injury, but following the game coach Rob Chudzinski said Mingo had been taken to the hospital and would...

Browns fans predict the team will go 9-7 in 2013

Browns fans are an optimistic bunch, at least collectively. When you add up the results of our survey, it yields a 9-7 prediction. (Game-by-game results are listed below.) That’s probably a bit too confident for my tastes. I’ve said all along that eight wins should be the goal for the team if they are able to stay healthy and get better from last season. So let’s break it down...

Browns vs Lions: What I’m Watching

The preseason continues tonight for the Cleveland Browns. Can they build on last week’s performance? These are the things I’ll be watching for… From the starters: 1) Cleveland’s offensive line handled the Rams. Especially in pass protection. Brandon Weeden had all kinds of time and took advantage of it to the tune of 10 for 13 passing for 112 yards and a touchdown. The Lions...

CLEVELAND (AP) -- This was a win that hurt the Browns. Quarterback Brandon Weeden's second straight strong performance turned into only a footnote Thursday night in a 24-6 victory over the Lions.

Cleveland Browns running back, Trent Richardson, will see his first action of the 2013 football season when he makes his debut this Thursday against the Detroit Lions.  Sidelined with an ailing shin this preseason, Richardson recently stated he is ready to play.  It looks like he will get his wish. Dan Hanzus of NFL.com reports the Browns will play Richardson “a couple of...

Streaker interrupts Browns-Lions game, gets lit up for his efforts (video)

An actual, real-life streaker — not the so-called “streakers” who run on to sports fields fully clothed — bared a lot of skin (perhaps too much) as he interrupted the Detroit Lions-Cleveland Browns preseason game during the third quarter on Thursday night. Reports out of Cleveland indicate that Lions running back Joique Bell tried to […]The post Streaker interrupts Browns...
