Browns | Brandon Jackson now No. 2 RB

Tue, 27 Aug 2013 18:22:01 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Brandon Jackson is now the team's primary backup to RB Trent Richardson after the loss of both RBs Montario Hardesty (knee) and Dion Lewis (fibula) to the season-ending Injured Reserve list. "Brandon is a reliable guy," head coach Rob Chudzinski said Tuesday, Aug. 27. "I have no issues with Brandon. Trent will be the guy we're counting on in a lot of different ways. We have to do a good job of keeping him fresh throughout the course of the season."

Browns | Dion Lewis carted off

Thu, 15 Aug 2013 18:54:27 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Dion Lewis (ankle) was carted off the field after suffering a left ankle injury during the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis is having a great training camp and was on track to become the No. 2 running back this season, but could miss some time depending on the severity of the injury. Montario Hardesty was also a candidate for the backup RB job, but he is out recovering from knee surgery. Brandon Jackson could become the backup by default depending on Lewis' injury and would be the handcuff to Trent Richardson.

Browns | Montario Hardesty to miss two games

Thu, 15 Aug 2013 16:09:52 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Montario Hardesty (knee) will miss at least the first two weeks of the regular season after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery Thursday, Aug. 15. Hardesty has had surgery on both of the anterior cruciate ligaments in both of his knees already. He's missed most of training camp with a hamstring issue and a dislocated right thumb earlier this week. RBs Dion Lewis and Brandon Jackson are competing for the backup spot behind RB Trent Richardson.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis has stood out in camp and should be the favorite to back up Richardson at this point. Target him in the late rounds if you're worried about how Richardson will hold up in his second full season.

Browns | Montario Hardesty to have knee scoped

Wed, 14 Aug 2013 09:46:38 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Montario Hardesty (knee, thumb) will have arthroscopic knee surgery Thursday, Aug. 15. He also recently suffered a dislocated right thumb.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain how long Hardesty will be sidelined, but with a new regime in place which did not draft him, and Dion Lewis coming on strong and Brandon Jackson, Miguel Maysonet or Chris Ogbonnaya looking more than capable behind starter Trent Richardson, Hardesty's chances of winning a spot on the 53-man roster appear to be awfully remote at this point.

Browns | Montario Hardesty has dislocated thumb

Tue, 13 Aug 2013 21:15:08 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns RB Montario Hardesty (thumb) has been ruled out for the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 15, against the Detroit Lions due to a dislocated right thumb. "We padded him up, and he was OK," head coach Rob Chudzinski said Tuesday, Aug. 13. "He went out and did some individual drills in practice today, and we'll see about him for next week."

Fantasy Tip: Hardesty being sidelined is great news for Dion Lewis, who is trying to rise up the depth chart. Lewis turned heads in the preseason opener, and is a serious threat not only to Hardesty's job, but could potentially put Hardesty's roster spot in jeopardy.
