I think I came and played well. I think I put my best foot forward and we’re going to just go from there. I’m not into this and that, I just try to come out here and work everyday and do the best I can do. […] I just go out and take everyday day-by-day. We just have to go out and put our best foot forward. Like I said, if I answer those things and whatever comes out of it, is what will happen.
— Cleveland Browns running back Montario Hardesty, Thursday, following the team’s fourth pre-season game. Fumbling twice in two previous contests, Hardesty finished up the exhibition period by rushing six times for 24 yards. This compares to an abysmal 12 yards on eight carries in the team’s loss to the Philadelphia Eagles just one week earlier.
