Browns Training Camp News: Brandon Jackson Works With First Team As Montario Hardesty Sits Out

It has been a rough preseason for Cleveland Browns running back Montario Hardesty, so he was held out of practice Sunday while Brandon Jackson saw playing time with the first team.

After Hardesty lost fumbles in each of the Browns' last two games, Jackson practiced with the team while Hardesty worked on individual drills. Whoever wins the position battle between the two will be the backup to Trent Richardson when he is healthy.

Hardesty knows he is on thin ice with his recent play as he tells The News-Herald:

"I can't give up the ball backed up," Hardesty said. "That's something that I already know, and they reiterated it today. I can't do that. I have to make sure that we keep the ball and just keeping moving forward, especially in those positions. I can't put our defense in those positions like that where now I'm giving the other team three or seven points."
