Found August 14, 2013 on Waiting For Next Year:
On Thursday, instead of playing in Cleveland’s second preseason game against the Lions, running back Montario Hardesty will be having arthroscopic surgery on his knee. The knee scope is the latest in a series of physical setbacks for the fourth year player from the University of Tennessee. Hardesty was hampered with a hamstring injury during camp, and on Monday dislocated his thumb. Coach Rob Chudzinski said that the knee injury isn’t related to the hamstring issue, but that it had been bothering him for some time. Montario has played in just 46% of the Browns’ games since being drafted, missing all of 2010. He is being pressed for a roster spot by Dion Lewis, Brandon Jackson and Chris Ogbonnaya. If Hardesty is unable to play for any length of time he could be a candidate to go on the PUP list. [Related: Craig Robertson working hard to make an impact]
