Ty Montgomery working hard to stay healthy

After missing eight games last season, Green Bay Packers running back Ty Montgomery has been at the team's facilities to work out and prepare "every day." According to Rob Demovsky's article, Packers' coach Mike McCarthy said that Montgomery "looks great," and appears "bigger, stronger" as he prepares to enter his second camp as a running back.

Fantasy Impact

Montgomery has missed 19 of a possible 48 (40%) NFL games since being selected in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft. Then a wide receiver out of Stanford, Montgomery converted to running back in 2017 to aide Green Bay's backfield deficiencies and flashed some big-time ability. Nagging injuries have hurt Montgomery's progress, and Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones both looked like better pure runners last season. With Jordy Nelson now in Oakland, there could be a strong case to move Montgomery back to wideout, but that doesn't appear to be part of the early plans in Green Bay. Three-headed backfield can work at the pro level, but are a nightmare for fantasy purposes, making the Green Bay running back rotation one of the most important situations for fantasy football fans to monitor throughout the spring and summer.

Ty Montgomery placed on Injured Reserve

The Packers have placed Ty Montgomery on Injured Reserve with rib and wrist issues, according to Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Impact

Montgomery began the year as the starting running back and did extremely well, before succumbing to injuries. With Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones showing they can be successful as starting running backs, Montgomery's long-term future is murky. As for Williams and Jones (when he returns), the absence of Montgomery only enhances their value going forward, obviously.

Ty Montgomery doubtful for Week 12

Green Bay Packers beat writer Rob Demovsky is reporting RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) is doubtful to play in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact

Montgomery is on track to miss his second straight game with a ribs injury he aggravated in Week 10. With Aaron Jones also out, Jamaal Williams is in line to receive a full workload in a tough matchup against the Steelers. Still, due to his anticipated opportunity-share, Williams is in the Flex conversation for Week 12.

Ty Montgomery remains sidelined in practice

Ty Montgomery (ribs) remained sidelined during Friday's practice. Coach McCarthy has stated that Montgomery must practice before being cleared to play.

Fantasy Impact

Montgomery has not practiced all week as he rehabs his injury. Montgomery has yet to be officially ruled out for Week 12 but at this point he should be considered highly doubtful. An official ruling on his status will be announced in the near future. Jamaal Williams is set to dominate the running back snaps in his absence.

Ty Montgomery still not practicing with rib injury

Ty Montgomery (ribs) is not participating in Wednesday's practice.

Fantasy Impact

Montgomery has yet to resume practicing since suffering from a rib injury in Week 10. Coach McCarthy suggested that this is not a long-term injury so it is possible Montgomery could return to practice later in the week. Until he practices, Montgomery should be considered doubtful for Week 12. Jamaal Williams will be the feature back in his absence.
