Stanford WR Ty Montgomery (arm) questionable for season opener
David Shaw said Thursday that senior wide receiver and kick returner Ty Montgomery could miss Stanford's game against USC in September.
Stanford could be without Ty Montgomery, one of its most dynamic playmakers, when the Cardinal take the field against UC Davis on Aug. 30.
The senior wide receiver missed all of spring practice after surgeries on his knee and arm. Stanford coach David Shaw said Thursday that Montgomery will be limited when the team starts camp on Aug. 4 and laid out a potential timeline for his return.
"Hopefully, by the end of training camp, he'll be able to do more contact stuff," Shaw said via Jon Wilner, of the Mercury News. "He might not play the first game, and it will be close for USC."
Stanford will be heavily favored against UC Davis regardless of Montgomery's status, but his availability could have a huge impact on that Stanford-USC game. Montgomery was an All-American specialist last season, ranking second nationally in kickoff return yards per game. Stanford will want his ability to flip the field or make a big play on offense in order to avoid an early conference loss and get revenge for last season's 20-17 loss in the Coliesum.
