And now, Browns RB Montario Hardesty needs knee surgery

This is not what a guy fighting for a roster spot wants to hear. After he dislocated a thumb on Monday, the Browns announced Wednesday that running back Montario Hardesty @MoHard20 needs arthroscopic knee surgery. Head coach Rob Chudzinski said Hardesty is getting a scope performed on his knee "just to clean it up." He also said it's completely unrelated to the hamstring injury that Hardesty fought through earlier in training camp.

Fantasy Analysis:

Hardesty's recovery timetable is unknown, but you should expect him to miss at least 2-3 weeks. One of the reasons why Hardesty will probably be cut before the regular season is he just keeps getting hurt. I mean, he has suffered three injuries to different body parts in just the past two weeks. He was Trent Richardson's backup last season, but Dion Lewis @DionLewis28 looks to be the favorite for that gig now.
