Ty Montgomery suffered broken ribs vs. Bears

Aaron-Jones-092817-getty-ftr

Those injuries paved the way for rookie running back Aaron Jones to play a big role.

The Packers led 21-7 in a game that was delayed about 45 minutes between the first and second quarters because of a lightning storm.

For the Green Bay Packers, good injury news often comes with a grain of salt.




ESPN's Adam Schefter added that Green Bay is now uncertain of how long the Stanford product will be out.

Packers starting running back Ty Montgomery has been knocked out of the game against the Chicago Bears with a chest injury. In the end, we'll have a better bearing on his ability to suit up once the Packers release their first Week 5 injury report Wednesday. He said that based off of the conversations Montgomery has been having with the training staff, he's preparing to play against the Cowboys. Green Bay saw both Ty Montgomery and Jamaal Williams go down with injuries and miss a large portion of the game. Williams is more of a between the tackles back. But even a torn ligament in his ankle that cost him a decent chunk of time couldn't keep him from racking up over 4,000 career rushing yards for the Miners, creating a lengthy highlight reel along the way. The 24-year-old finished the 2016 season with 77 carries for 457 rushing yards and three touchdowns.

On that note, here are five running backs Packers general manager Ted Thompson could look to acquire. He has made that a football life of the past, becoming the a multi-threat option, also hauling in 18 receptions for 129 yards and a touchdown this year out of the backfield.
