Montario Hardesty Reportedly Has Torn Calf Muscle, Expected To Miss Games

Montario Hardesty left Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers during the Browns' second series with an apparent right calf injury. Hardesty was scheduled to have an MRI on Monday, and now it looks like the MRI is showing an injury that will make Hardesty miss some games: the Associated Press is reporting that he has a torn calf muscle.

It's a definite blow to the Browns, who only had Chris Ogbonnaya to work with once Hardesty went down, since starter Peyton Hillis missed the game with a hamstring injury. Hardesty was given the start after rushing for almost 100 yards against the Seattle Seahawks and now the team is definitely hoping Hillis will be back sooner rather than later.

This marks the third running back in as many games injured against the 49ers. LeGarrette Blount and Jahvid Best have both missed games following games against San Francisco, for what that's worth.
