Montario Hardesty injury update: Probable, remains strict fantasy handcuff

Matt Sullivan

Montario Hardesty is probable for Week 8 against the Chargers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns RB Montario Hardesy (knee) is officially listed as probable for Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers. Hardesty was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday, but it's likely the team just limited his reps after getting his first real game action of the year. He was a full participant in Friday practice and should be good to go.

Hardesty didn't record a single carry until Week 6, when Trent Richardson (ribs) left the game. He has just 22 carries for 84 yards and a TD on the year.

Fantasy Impact: Richardson is expected to get the majority of touches again, so that relegates Hardesty to a pure handcuff role. He doesn't even play in passing downs, as Chris Ogbonnaya is the much better pass-catching back.

Hardesty remains a non-factor in fantasy leagues.
