Browns RB Hardesty getting work, praise

Whether or not there's a reason Jerome Harrison dodged the media after Thursday's Browns OTA practice, it's fair to wonder if there's a reason Harrison changed course last week, signed an injury waiver and returned to work.

The starting job he waited so long to get very well could be at stake.

In late April, the Browns moved up in the draft to select Montario Hardesty. When the team took to the field for practice sessions in late May, James Davis -- whose promising rookie season was cut short by injury last year -- was also back in the mix.

Hardesty was getting the bulk of the reps with the first-team offense in Thursday's practice, the only one this week open to the media. And the head coach who's consistently praised Hardesty since rookie minicamp did so again Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: 

This is a situation that should figure itself out by the time your draft rolls around. Harrison or Hardesty could be a nice RB2 or flex player this year, assuming one is eventually named the starter.
