02:34 PM ET 08.14 | While Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson is set to make the first preseason game of his NFL career on Thursday, one of the team's backups has been ruled out with an injury of his own. According to reports, Montario Hardesty suffered a dislocated thumb that will keep him out of action. Hardesty would not speak with reporters after Tuesday's practice. He was wearing padding on his thumb during the session. With Hardesty out of action, it is an even bigger opportunity for third-string running back Dion Lewis, who looked exceptional during his first outing with the Browns last week.
