Shark Bites

The "initial belief based on early tests" is that Bears RB David Montgomery's knee injury is not major, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Montgomery hyperextended the knee and is set for an MRI on Monday. We should get a more concrete diagnosis then. Damien Williams will step in as Chicago's lead back if Montgomery misses time.

Recent Shark Bites

Bears RB David Montgomery (knee) has been activated from IR, putting him in line to play vs. the Steelers tonight. It'll be his first action since Week 4. HC Matt Nagy said earlier this week that Montgomery remains the lead back when healthy -- but it's unclear if he's ready to step back into that role tonight. Montgomery and RB Khalil Herbert are risky fantasy plays tonight.

Bears HC Matt Nagy said Saturday that there's a "really good chance" RB David Montgomery plays against the Steelers on Monday night. Montgomery returned to practice on Thursday after going down with a sprained knee back in Week 4. RB Khalil Herbert has played very well in relief, but Nagy said earlier this week that a healthy Montgomery remains the lead back. What's unclear is whether Montgomery is ready to take back that lead role on Monday night. Your best bet is to avoid this backfield in Week 9 fantasy lineups.

Bears HC Matt Nagy made it clear that RB David Montgomery will "still get the bulk of the carries" when he's recovered from his knee injury, according to insider Mark Grote. Montgomery returned to practice on Thursday, but his status for Monday night's game against the Steelers remains uncertain. When he does return, though, he'll be the superior fantasy option to RB Khalil Herbert, who's played very well in relief of Montgomery.

Bears RB David Montgomery will practice on Thursday for the 1st time since spraining his knee back in Week 4. Montgomery is eligible to play vs. the Steelers on Monday night, but it's still unclear if he will. It's worth noting that the Bears have a Week 10 bye, so they could opt to hold Montgomery out for 1 more game and get him another week of rest.

The Bears placed RB David Montgomery (knee) on IR, knocking him out for at least the next 3 weeks. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says "3-5 weeks" is Montgomery's timetable for return. We'll see if he can make it back before Chicago's Week 10 bye.
