Montgomery 'optimistic' about Week 5

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Bears RB David Montgomery (ankle) is "optimistic" about playing today against the Vikings. These reports almost always come across as "expected" or "not expected" to play, so the wording here seems to indicate a bit less confidence in Montgomery's status. We wouldn't be surprised if an active Montgomery gets less than his usual workload -- especially with Khalil Herbert running well and the Bears heavy underdogs on the road. If Montgomery is active, this looks like a backfield to try to avoid. We will keep our RB rankings updated throughout the morning.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Montgomery "plans to play against the Vikings barring any pregame setbacks."
