Ty Montgomery manages just 31 yards in Week 6 loss

Ty Montgomery took 10 carries for 28 yards while catching just one of his three targets for another three yards in the Packers' 23-10 loss to the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Montgomery didn't miss as much time as many thought he would with that rib injury, but he didn't look too hot in this one anyway. He did get the start, but he was out-touched (14-11) and out-rushed (42-31) by rookie Aaron Jones in the contest. With Aaron Rodgers out for at least a couple of months, a heavier emphasis on the running game wouldn't be a surprise. Expect that shift in philosophy to benefit the rookie Jones more than Montgomery however.

Ty Montgomery returns Week 6; will split carries with Aaron Jones

Ty Montgomery is active for Sunday’s matchup with the Minnesota Vikings after leaving Week 4’s game early and sitting out Week 5 with a rib injury.

Fantasy Impact

Montgomery is supposedly returning without any limitations, but he is expected to split touches with Aaron Jones, who impressed with Montgomery out. While a fully healthy Montgomery likely steps back into the lead role, Jones is probably here to stay and should eat into Montgomery’s volume in the coming weeks as long as he continues to impress.

Ty Montgomery could miss extended time

NFL medical expert Dr. David Chao believes Green Bay Packers running back Ty Montgomery (ribs) could miss "multiple weeks" of football activities with fractured ribs.

Fantasy Impact

Although Montgomery was hoping he could give it a go Sunday against Dallas, it was a mere shot in the dark. Ultimately listed as doubtful for the contest on the injury report, he is trending toward an inactive designation. He could miss extended time with his injury. Expect Green Bay to employ a heavy dose of Jamaal Williams, who is likely to play through a knee injury, and Aaron Jones out of the backfield in Week 5.

Ty Montgomery uncertain for Week 5

Green Bay Packers beat writer Rob Demovsky believes "it might be a stretch to expect" running back Ty Montgomery (ribs) to play in Week 5.

Fantasy Impact

Since both Montgomery and Jamaal Williams dealing with injuries -- the latter is dealing with a knee injury -- their playing status for Sunday's rivalry matchup against the Cowboys remains unclear. However, reading into Demovsky's words, fantasy owners should prepare as if both RBs will be designated inactive -- at least at this point. In that scenario, Aaron Jones would be in line for the Packers' RB1 role, with Devante Mays the likely change of pace back, for Week 5.

Ty Montgomery out with broken ribs

Ty Montgomery was hurt early in Thursday night's game and has reportedly suffered broken ribs. The Packers have not officially confirmed this.

Fantasy Impact

It's a huge blow for Montgomery owners and while he did play snaps after suffering the injury, it's more than likely he'll miss at least a week. Jamaal Williams also exited the game in the second quarter grabbing his hamstring making Aaron Jones and Aaron Ripkowski the only healthy backs. Keep monitoring both players' injuries. Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones would immediately become the priority pickups in that order (if Williams is healthy).
