Browns lose Hardesty to calf injury

The Cleveland Browns already had running back issues with Peyton Hillis' hamstring. Now, they are even thinner at the position, losing Montario Hardesty to a calf injury Sunday in San Francisco.

Browns coach Pat Shurmur said he is not sure how many games Hardesty will miss, and added "it's going to take some time to heal,' according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.'

That means the Browns will spend Tuesday's off day working out street free agents in an attempt to bolster their running back depth, having both their top two guys on the shelf now.

Cleveland finished Sunday's loss with Chris Ogbannaya at running back and also had fullback Owen Marecic available, as well as utility man/kick returner Josh Cribbs, who has some experience in the backfield as well.
