Berea (Sports Network) -- Cleveland Browns running back Montario Hardesty
will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery Thursday.
It is unknown which knee is going to being scoped or when he will return, but
the typical recovery time on such surgeries is about one month.
For the 26-year-old Hardesty, it's another injury to a long list of issues
that have plagued his football career. He is no stranger to knee injuries as
he tore his left ACL in the final preseason game in 2010 and missed his entire
rookie season. He also missed half of 2011 with a torn calf muscle and had his
right ACL repaired when he was a freshman at the University of Tennessee.
This season, he missed most of training camp with a hamstring injury and
dislocated his right thumb on Monday.
"He's knee has been nagging him for a little bit. This is unrelated to the
hamstring tendon that he injured that kept him out earlier in camp," Browns
coach Rob Chudzinski said.
Last season, Hardesty rushed for 271 yards and one touchdown in 13 games as a
backup to Trent Richardson.
