Cleveland Browns running back Montario Hardesty is "Questionable" for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals after he was limited in the final two practices of the week with a calf injury that cost him a few games earlier this season.
Head coach Pat Shurmur said that Hardesty will be active and available to play, the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reported on Friday.
A 2010 second-round pick out of Tennessee who missed his entire rookie season with a torn ACL, Hardestyy assumed a starting role when last year's leading rusher, Peyton Hillis, suffered a hamstring injury. After carrying the ball 33 times for 95 yards in a 6-3 win over the Seattle Seahawks, Hardesty injured his calf the following week in a loss to the San Francisco 49ers, missing three weeks before he was active, but did not play or receive carries back-to-back games against the Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens in Weeks 12 and 13.
Hardesty had a team-high 11 carries for just 24 yards in last week's loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
