LenDale White and Montario Hardesty each left their team's respective preseason game Thursday night after suffering an injury, and the news today is even worse, as it appears that both running backs will miss the entire 2010 season. White ruptured his Achilles; Hardesty tore his ACL.
Clearly, Hardesty's injury is the most disappointing -- the Browns drafted him in the second round and believed that he could be a significant contributor to the team this year. The upshot is that they at least have Jerome Harrison (who, thanks in part to his fumbling, the coaches don't seem to like) who can shoulder the load.
Still, it's a tough pill to swallow. White's injury is less painful because he wasn't even slated to see significant reps for the Broncos, given the presence of Knowshon Moreno and Correll Buckhalter, both of whom are healthy after earlier injuries.
