The Bears activated Montgomery (knee) from injured reserve ahead of Monday's game in Pittsburgh, Larry Mayer of the team's official site reports.

After missing four straight games due to the knee sprain he sustained Oct. 3, Montgomery was designated to return from IR on Thursday and turned in a strong week of practice, according to head coach Matt Nagy. Though Nagy didn't go into specifics regarding what Montgomery's workload will look like in his first game in more than a month, the 24-year-old is expected to displace Khalil Herbert as the Bears' lead back and see the bulk of the team's carries Monday, per Adam Hoge of NBC Sports Chicago. Montgomery totaled 358 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns through Chicago's first four games of the season.
