ESPN - [Full Article]

The backup to Cleveland RB Trent Richardson is likely yet to be determined, according to ESPN.

ESPN said don't be surprised if RB Montario Hardesty loses his roster spot. OC Norv Turner’s backs have to be able to catch the ball. Hardesty is a hard runner who has overcome numerous knee injuries and survived two head coaches. Through it all, he has been a liability as a dump-off receiver out of the backfield.

Fantasy Impact: 

The story went on to question that if Hardesty doesn't make it, can Chris Chris Ogbonnay or the 5-6 ½ Dion Lewis be counted on to ably replace Richardson in the event of another injury? The team also has Brandon Jackson on the roster. If you want to handcuff Richardson, it's a situation to pay attention to.
