The Bears don’t need any more obstacles to overcome on offense, but now they have an injury concern.

Via J.J. Stankevitz of NBCSportsChicago.com, Bears coach Matt Nagy said running back David Montgomerylightly rolled” his ankle in practice Wednesday. He was listed as limited yesterday.

Montgomery leads the Bears with 129 carries for 466 yards and five touchdowns this season, and has 58 carries the last three weeks.

Depending on his status for Sunday night’s game against the Rams, it could mean a bigger load for Tarik Cohen and Ryan Nall, the week after they released running back Mike Davis.

  1. Why haven’t they been using Cohen more anyways? He looked like one of the most explosive players last year then this year with limited draft picks they waste it on a different RB and keep Cohen on the bench.

    Because he’s 5’6″ 170 lbs. He’s not an NFL RB, he’s a gadget player.

    Ya Montgomery is proving to be a a great back with 466 yards on the season haha

  4. Doesn’t matter the Bears aren’t going anywhere they don’t have the Coach or the quarterback

  5. Tarik is dropping passes left and right. He’s also small.

    466 Yards for Montgomery is pretty good, considering he was only starting to get used like 3 weeks ago. My guess he hits 1,000 granted Nagy doesn’t forget to run the ball, needs 76/game here out. And obviously hoping his ankle isn’t serious.

    He never said he was a great back, you did cork! and you are cluelessly posting about the quality of ANY Bears running back when the O Line has been the consistency of wet toilet paper all season.

    The Bears are traveling to Los Angeles this weekend, so they are going somewhere. I just checked!

  8. I like Cohen as a player, but for crying out loud – every time they try to send a 5′ tall scat-back on a power bull run between the tackles it makes me want to sledge-hammer the tv screen. STAHP IT
