Montgomery has multiple broken ribs | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

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.

The Saints have signed RB Ty Montgomery, according to insider Nick Underhill. The 27-year-old was a non-factor with the Jets last season but compiled 107 catches over his first 4 NFL seasons (3.5 with the Packers and the rest with the Ravens). We're interested to see what HC Sean Payton does with Montgomery's unique skill set, but he's unlikely to be a fantasy asset without an injury to Alvin Kamara.

Jets RB Ty Montgomery (foot) is active for tonight's game against the Ravens. He should be the #2 RB with Bilal Powell inactive, but that's not likely to mean much playing time.

The New York Post's Brian Costello believes Jets RB Ty Montgomery "could be a significant piece" of the offense this season. The former Packer and Raven has been "one of the most impressive players" in camp, Costello adds. Although he's flamed out in lead roles, Montgomery is a plus pass-catcher and is still just 26. We're not expecting him to see enough action to be a real fantasy option. But he could put a dent in RB Le'Veon Bell's volume.

The Jets have reached a 1-year deal with RB Ty Montgomery, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The move came a day before the free agent was set to visit the Dolphins, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That seems a curious decisions by Montgomery: taking a 1-year deal with the team that just signed Le'Veon Bell -- almost certainly to dominate backfield touches -- rather than at least talk to a Miami squad with no proven workhorse. Montgomery will compete with Elijah McGuire to back up Bell, barring further personnel moves. The financial details here might help indicate how big a role the Jets expect for Montgomery.

Ravens RB Ty Montgomery is a surprise inactive for today's game against the Bucs. That leaves the backfield to Gus Edwards, Kenneth Dixon and Buck Allen. Dixon's volume has been on the rise, and he's in play as a RB3 or flex this weekend.
