He played 36 snaps to 14 for Khalil Herbert and just 1 for rookie Trestan Ebner. Montgomery led Herbert 18-7 in routes, according to Pro Football Focus, and claimed 75% of RB rushing attempts. He gained only 20 yards on those 12 carries but scored from 9 yards out. Montgomery added a team-high 62 receiving yards on 4 catches. Only WR Darnell Mooney edged him in targets (5). TE Cole Kmet was the only other Bear to exceed 2 receptions. Herbert gained just 11 yards on 4 carries and saw 0 targets.
