NFL training camps are always full of injuries, however, this year that seems to ring even more true.

Case in point? Cleveland Browns running back Montario Hardesty, who according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer will miss at least the first two or three weeks of the season after undergoing a knee scope.

Per Mary Kay Cabot:

The good news for Montario Hardesty this week was that his injured right thumb wasn’t broken, but dislocated. The bad news was that he’ll undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Thursday, and a source told that he’ll miss the first two to three regular-season games.

Even more troubling for Hardesty and Browns fans is that it’s the same knee that Hardesty tore his ACL in during the 2010 season.

It’s just one of many injuries Hardesty has dealt with, dating back to his time at Tennessee, though the more they accumulate, the more troubling they seem to become.

Hardesty was penciled in as Trent Richardson‘s backup, a role that will likely fall to Dion Lewis until Hardesty returns to full strength.
