Ty Montgomery looking to build on his performance vs. Cowboys
Ty Montgomery caught 10 passes in Sunday's game vs. the Cowboys.
Ty Montgomery has been slightly invisible in the Green Bay Packers first four games of 2016. But that wasn't the case in on Sunday vs. the Dallas Cowboys as he caught 10 passes for 98 yards and rushed for six yards on three carries.
Due to injuries, Montgomery was not able to really take off in his rookie season. Now that he's healthy, the Stanford alum is staring to get more snaps and is making the most out of them.

“I thought Ty did a lot of good things,” coach Mike McCarthy said via the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “I would have liked to get more of a run game with him there, it just wasn’t quite right. But it was good to get him opportunities. I felt the five-wide receiver package with him in the backfield as a wide receiver with the one tight end, we were able to get some good looks and have some production.”
Montgomery had to play running back because the Packers only had one "healthy" running back on the roster on Sunday which was Eddie Lacy. But Lacy was playing with an injured ankle which lead to Montgomery carrying the ball three times.
The Packers will had more depth at the running back position because they just acquired Knile Davis from the Kansas City Chiefs. However, Montgomery said that he will be ready for anything when the Packers take on the Bears this Thursday.
"I have to be prepared for whatever, whenever," Montgomery said on Monday.
Montgomery is also known for his special teams play and he made one of the smartest plays during a kick return against the Detroit Lions. Here's a look at the play.
If there's one thing to expect from the Packers on Thursday, Montgomery will be one of the featured players on offense. And with Davantae Adams suffering a concussion on Sunday, there's a very good chance Montgomery will be a starter along with Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb.
