Montario Hardesty RB CLE Oct 10 '78

Starting in place of an injured Trent Richardson, Montario Hardesty rushed 14 times for just 37 yards at Pittsburgh in Week 17.

Hardesty showed impressive burst on a 16-yard first quarter scamper but was bottled up by a stout run Steelers front seven the rest of the way. Richardson's change-of-pace back posted 303 yards on 65 carries (4.66 YPC) in the best season of his three-year career. Under contract for $575,000, Hardesty will likely be back in the same role under a new coaching staff.
