Bears coach Matt Nagy said "there's a really good chance" Montgomery (knee), who is currently designated to return from injured reserve, will play in Monday's contest against the Steelers, Adam Hoge of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

This is going to be a difficult situation for fantasy managers considering the Bears don't need to activate Montgomery off injured reserve until later in the afternoon Sunday. It's a bit surprising the star running back is even considered possibly available for Monday's contest given the Bears will have their bye take place in Week 10, theoretically giving the 24-year-old an ample amount of time to recover from his scary Week 4 knee injury, but this does fit nicely with the reported four-week recovery timeline. It's also worth noting primary backup Damien Williams (knee) has already been ruled out ahead of Monday's contest. Regardless of whether or not Montgomery plays, expect rookie Khalil Herbert to be a factor at least somewhat given his impressive figures as Montgomery's fill-in (388 total yards across four games).
