Ty Montgomery Injury Updates

Jets HC Adam Gase said RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) won't practice on Wednesday and will be monitored beyond that. His knee injury reportedly isn't serious, but he shouldn't be considered a lock to play against the Giants this weekend. Bell's absence would leave the Jets' backfield to some type of committee with Ty Montgomery, Bilal Powell and possibly Josh Adams.

Jets RB Le'Veon Bell suffered a knee injury in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins, HC Adam Gase said. Bell is undergoing an MRI to determine the severity. We'll update his status as soon as we know more. Bell's absence would leave Ty Montgomery as the likely leader of backfield committee alongside Bilal Powell.

Packers HC Mike McCarthy said after Friday night's preseason game that RB Ty Montgomery's foot injury is "nothing of a serious nature." We'll see when he's able to get back on the field, but it sounds like he's tentatively on track for Week 1. Montgomery will open the season in a pass-catching role behind lead back Jamaal Williams.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery left Friday night’s exhibition at Oakland with an unspecified foot injury. We’ll see how serious the issue is.

Packers RB Jamaal Williams limped off the field during Thursday night's preseason game agains the Steelers with an ankle injury. We'll look for an update on the severity. Williams has been in the driver's seat for Green Bay's starting job for at least the first 2 weeks of the season with RB Aaron Jones suspended. If this ankle injury gets in the way, the Packers would be left with Ty Montgomery atop the depth chart.

Ty Montgomery disappointed in his chance at lead-back duties for the Packers last year. He averaged just 3.8 yards per carry and missed 8 games with injuries. But he's still set to play a significant role in Green Bay's 2018 offense, ESPN's Rob Demovsky confirms. Montgomery showed well in OTAs and "didn't appear to lose any ground" to RBs Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams, according to Demovsky. Montgomery averaged 5.9 yards per carry and caught 44 balls in more of a change-of-pace role back in 2016. He finished that season 33rd among RBs in PPR points. There's certainly room for him to return to that type of production this season. And Montgomery is being selected just 47th among RBs in recent best-ball drafts.

The Packers have placed RB Ty Montgomery on IR, ending his 2017 season. He got off to a rocking start, with 253 yards and 3 TDs in his first 3 games. But he suffered a rib injury in the 4th that's hampered him ever since. Montgomery is also dealing with a wrist injury that requires surgery, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He should be fine for the offseason program, but Montgomery will need to fight for a 2018 role in Green Bay's young, crowded backfield.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) didn’t practice all week and is out for Sunday’s game against the Ravens. There’s no timetable for his return, but HC Mike McCarthy did say Friday that he doesn’t think Montgomery’s injury is a “long-term concern.” With RB Aaron Jones (knee) also out, Jamaal Williams is a volume-based RB2 option for Week 11.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery suffered a rib injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game in Chicago and is done for the day. This is presumably related to the rib issue that cost him a game back in October, but we should learn more over the next 24 hours. With RB Aaron Jones out with a knee injury, Jamaal Williams is left as Green Bay's lead back.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Vikings. He put in a full week of practice, though, and signs point to him playing. The bigger question is Montgomery’s workload with the rib injury and RB Aaron Jones’ emergence. Consider Montgomery and Jones both risk/reward RB2s for Week 6.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery confirmed in a Monday radio appearance that he has multiple broken ribs. He also admitted that he's iffy for this weekend's game against the Cowboys. "I'm going to do my best to try to be out there," Montgomery said. "But of course, I have to be wary of risking something more serious. I don't want to puncture any internal organs ... I'm feeling a lot better than I felt on Thursday. I can laugh now, I can sleep now. My movement's fine. It's just a matter of, is it going to be safe enough for me to be out there and not risk internal injury? That's the conversation I'm trying to have now." Earlier reports had Montgomery "day-to-day," but he seems no better than 50/50 to play this Sunday. We'll monitor him throughout the week.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Packers RB Ty Montgomery suffered broken ribs in Thursday night's game vs. Chicago. The Packers have denied that report and continue to say only that Montgomery has a chest injury. The situation should clear up over the next 24 hours. RB Aaron Jones will be the Packers RB to own if both Montgomery and Jamaal Williams (knee) miss time.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter is also reporting that Montgomery broke his ribs. "Packers uncertain how long he’ll be out," Schefter adds.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery suffered what the team is calling a chest injury on the 1st drive of Thursday night's game against the Bears. He headed to the locker room with trainers and is questionable to return. Montgomery carried 5 times for 28 yards before exiting.

Update: Montgomery has been ruled out for the rest of the game.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery (leg) returned to practice on Tuesday, according to insider Tom Silverstein. He ended up missing a few practices and the 2nd preseason game with the "soft-tissue" injury. RB Jamaal Williams failed to take much advantage in that exhibition, carrying 5 times for 15 yards. Montgomery remains the heavy favorite to operate as Green Bay's lead back this season.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery has missed the past 2 days of practice with a lower leg injury. When asked for details on Tuesday, Montgomery offered, "just soft-tissue stuff." He added, "It was just something on and off. Something I’m dealing with. Nothing in particular that happened. Nothing major. Nothing to worry about." We'll keep an eye on this one.

Packers RB James Starks missed Wednesday's practice with a concussion. It's the 1st we've heard of the brain injury and puts his Week 15 status in question. Starks has fallen off the fantasy radar, but his absence would give Ty Montgomery a boost.

Packers WR Ty Montgomery (illness) is not listed on the final Week 9 injury report. He'll return for this Sunday's plus matchup vs. the Colts and figures to be heavily involved as both a RB and WR.

The Packers have released RB Knile Davis, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. That was quick. Acquired on October 18, Davis carried only 5 times for 5 yards across 2 games. Green Bay is left with Don Jackson and James Starks at RB (plus hybrid player Ty Montgomery). Starks hasn’t played since Week 5 due to a knee injury.

Packers WR Ty Montgomery (ankle) has been activated from the PUP list. He suffered a significant ankle injury in October and had a multi-faceted surgery in December. Montgomery has a lot of lost time to make up. But the good news is that no one in the race for Green Bay's #3 WR job has stepped up.

Packers HC Mike McCarthy likes what he's seen from WR Jared Abbrederis this offseason. "I think Jared's had his best offseason," McCarthy said. "I think his route running is exemplary for a young guy. His ability to recognize coverages, and his time clock, his breaking points, his ability to drop his weight -- just all the specifics and details and techniques of route running, I think he's exceptional. He just needs to continue to work on getting stronger. He plays the position technically and fundamentally at a very high level." Abbrederis has struggled with injuries -- a torn ACL in 2014 and a concussion last summer -- but stepped up to haul in 6 balls for 69 yards in Green Bay's 2 playoff games last year. He's in the mix for the #3 WR job this season, along with Jeff Janis, Davante Adams and Ty Montgomery.
