Report: Ty Montgomery’s rib injury not as bad as initially thought

AP

The Packers could have Ty Montgomery back sooner than expected.

The running back’s rib injury is not as bad as the Packers initially thought, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Green Bay lists Montgomery as day to day, and with 10 days in between games, he could play against the Cowboys in Week 5.

Montgomery apparently was injured on the first play from scrimmage. He finished with five carries for 28 yards.

“The conversation he’s had with the trainers, he’s preparing to play in Dallas,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said earlier Friday, via the team website.

Backup running back Jamaal Williams departed in the second quarter with a left knee injury. He had ice packs on his knee and ankle after the game. But Williams escaped serious injury, per Schefter, and the Packers have no plans to bring in other running backs “at this time.”

  1. My respect for Packer fans went up a couple notches when, after Rodgers asked the fans to lock arms in “unity”, they in fact stood and placed their hand over their hearts during the Anthem last night. Maybe they ARE the greatest fans in the league?

    Skol

  2. Why would Montgomery want to come back? So he can potentially be called out publicly by his coaches like Damarious Randall was last night? We will see how eager Montgomery and other ‘injured’ Packers are to come back to play for those coaches.

  3. It’s Friday afternoon when people are kicking back with a beer and friends. Cheese is Fattening is alone trolling Packers articles. #sadsadsad

    Nice work Schefter did to jump the gun within minutes and declare Montgomery broke ribs. #sloppyjournalismdude

    Would you please expound a little more on your babble? Not sure why Montgomery would be called out.

    Why I have nothing but love and friendship towards all football fans. Even Packer fans. I don’t know, I try my best to help you guys out with understanding the finer points of football and the nuances of the game and this is the thanks I get? Name calling? I really don’t know anymore about some people in this world.

    cheeseis, great news another packers story to troll. smh Just worry about your soon to be 3rd place Vikes!

    Third place after this week and then the battle for last place the following week!

  8. Montgomery is chiseled, however, he’s made of glass. He’s been injured every season. The guy is not an every-down back. Period. He should be used in a rotation, a la Atlanta, where they keep backs fresh throughout game. He’d be even more effective catching passes. McCarthy is a maddening coach. He just doesn’t give a crap for the running game. To watch him consistently go empty from inside the five just reinforces they’re a finesse (soft) team.

    If ignorant comments were gold, you’d be a billionaire.

  10. He’s been real good. You’d expect any RB in that offense to be able to rip off 5 yards a carry because there are no loaded boxes, but over the last couple years a lot of their RBs haven’t been able to do it. He’s not small, but I still wonder about his durability. He converted so late to RB from WR I feel like the amount of hits and punishment from all angles is something his body just isn’t used to. RBs and WRs get injured at a similar rate, but I think research shows RBs are the most likely position to suffer significant injuries.

  11. I don’t understand why almost everyone, especially the TV crew, didn’t know that Monty already had a rib injury coming into this game. I’m sure the Bears knew it.

  12. it will still be a serious problem moving forward

    he is too tall to be a lead rb
    =====

    If he’s healthy, he’s the starter for this team.

    The only problem here is you know nothing about anything that goes on outside of beantown.
