Browns | Montario Hardesty has dislocated thumb

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns RB Montario Hardesty (thumb) has been ruled out for the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 15, against the Detroit Lions due to a dislocated right thumb. "We padded him up, and he was OK," head coach Rob Chudzinski said Tuesday, Aug. 13. "He went out and did some individual drills in practice today, and we'll see about him for next week."

Fantasy Tip: Hardesty being sidelined is great news for Dion Lewis, who is trying to rise up the depth chart. Lewis turned heads in the preseason opener, and is a serious threat not only to Hardesty's job, but could potentially put Hardesty's roster spot in jeopardy.
