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.

Recent Shark Bites

Bears RB David Montgomery (shoulder, groin, glute) is not listed on the final injury report after putting in a full practice on Friday. He should be ready for a workhorse role on Sunday night against the Packers.

Bears RB David Montgomery (shoulder, groin, glute) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He should be fine for Sunday night's game vs. the Packers, but we'll get another update on Montgomery tomorrow.

Bears RB David Montgomery did not practice on Wednesday and is on the injury report with shoulder, groin and glute issues. This looks like a rest day after Montgomery racked up 29 touches in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, but we'll get another update tomorrow.

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.
