Montario Hardesty will start at running back on Sunday against the Steelers with Trent Richardson (ankle) ruled out.

Hardesty is in line to get a heavy dose of carries with Thad Lewis starting at quarterback in place of Brandon Weeden (shoulder). Brandon Jackson will work in as the change-of-pace back behind Hardesty. For those fantasy leagues that run through Week 17, Hardesty would be a decent pick-up as he's surely to see a full slate of work.
