Cleveland Browns Injury Update: Montario Hardesty Works Out, Tests Calf

Cleveland Browns running back Montario Hardesty did not participate in practice with teammates indoors on Wednesday, but he did test his injured calf during a supervised outdoor workout, as reported by Tom Withers of the AP

"I want to play, but right now we’re still working to get there," he said. "So we’re just gonna keep on progressing. I’ve been running, just keep on progressing and see how I feel."

Hardesty has missed two straight games after tearing a muscle in his right calf in a loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Oct. 30, as the Browns have been hit hard at running back with both Hardesty and Peyton Hillis missing time with injuries.

But while Hillis has already been ruled out for this week, Coach Pat Shurmur expects Hardesty to practice this week and hopes he can play on Sunday when the Browns take on the Jacksonville Jaguars.
