BEREA, Ohio -- Montario Hardesty cant stop his unlucky run of injuries. Sam Darnold Jersey . The Browns running back will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery on Thursday, the latest medical setback for Hardesty, who dislocated his right thumb on Monday after missing most of training camp with a hamstring injury. Cleveland coach Rob Chudzinski said Hardesty has been bothered by soreness in his knee for a while, and that the surgery is not related to the hamstring injury that forced him to miss the majority of workouts this summer. Hardesty had only returned to practice on Monday when he injured his thumb while jumping to catch a direct snap from centre. Chudzinski does not know how long Hardesty, who has prior surgeries to repair torn ligaments in both knees, will be sidelined. "Hell make it back," Chudzinski said following practice Wednesday. Chudzinski did not know which knee Hardesty was going to have scoped. Hardesty was limited in practice Tuesday, when he had a protective wrap over his thumb. He left without speaking to reporters. The engaging 26-year-old has had injury issues throughout his NFL career. Hardesty tore his left anterior cruciate ligament in the final exhibition game in 2010 and missed his entire rookie season. Hardesty also had knee problems in college at Tennessee, and had his right ACL repaired when he was a freshman with the Volunteers. Hes battled back every time, and now Hardesty will have to do it again. "That injury bug is something you cant control," said linebacker DQwell Jackson, who had had to overcome two major chest injuries. "Hes just got to stay positive. Once he has his surgery, its just one day at a time, just look at how you can make the situation better. It starts with the attitude, attitude is everything. Its going to help the healing process and its going to help him mentally get through it." Hardesty was drafted in the second round by Cleveland in 2010. He rushed for 271 yards as Trent Richardsons backup last season, but his roster spot was believed to be in jeopardy because of the arrival of Dion Lewis, who recently passed him on the depth chart.

ATLANTA -- The Braves are supposed to be a team that relies on strong pitching and home runs. Instead, Atlanta evened its NL division series against the Los Angeles Dodgers with clutch defence as the complement for Mike Minors strong start. Jason Heyward drove in two runs with a bases-loaded single in the seventh, Minor allowed only one run and the Braves turned three double plays in their 4-3 win over Los Angeles on Friday night.

Mattingly wanted left-hander Paco Rodriguez to face Heyward, a left-handed hitter. Heyward drilled a two-run single up the middle for a 4-1 lead. Mattingly said Rodriguez "is a guy we think gets Heyward out. Been getting those guys out all year long for us." The decision to face Heyward instead of Johnson left room for second-guessing. "I mean, you think you obviously look at everything, but were down 2-1," Mattingly said. "Yeah, you always look back at everything. You could have done this, you could have done that. I think you look at it honestly and see what you think." Heyward said he understood the strategy. "Play the matchups," Heyward said. "Thats what the post-season is about. You go lefty-lefty there. "Im glad to have an opportunity to come through big for my team right there. I got a pitch and didnt miss it." Minor allowed one run on eight hits and one walk in 6 1-3 innings.

"He kind of caught (the grounder) a little weird and I was scared he was going to make a bad throw. He made a good throw and it was a good play." Simmons jumped in the air after making the throw to first as Ayala pumped his fist on the mound and Minor applauded in the dugout. "We played good defence," said Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez, who said Avilan made a bold throw. "You see a lot of those plays end up in centre field," Gonzalez said. Zack Greinke allowed two runs on only four hits and no walks in 6 innings. Right-hander Chris Withrow allowed two runs in the seventh. The Braves also turned double plays in the second and third innings follow leadoff singles by Juan Uribe and Crawford, respectively. David Carpenter almost lost the 4-1 lead in the eighth.
