Montario Hardesty Injury Update: Browns RB Will Be A Game-Time Decision

With Peyton Hillis already declared out for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Cleveland Browns severely need some help at the running back position. Chis Ogbonnaya and Thomas Clayton have been serviceable, but unable to get the job done and support Colt McCoy, who has shown over the last few weeks that he just can't carry the game on his own. Cleveland boasts a strong pass defense, but no offense to back it up.

That might change, at least a little bit this week, as there is hope that Montario Hardesty can play. Mary Kay Cabotreported on Twitter that Hardesty, Hillis' backup who was hurt in a game against the San Francisco 49ers, was pegged as a game-time decision by Browns head coach Pat Shurmur. 

Hardesty tested his calf on Thursday in a supervised workout, but did not practice with the team. Hardesty expressed his desire to play, but with Hillis re-injuring himself, they're being careful with the muscle tear.
