  • Bears' David Montgomery: Not practicing Wednesday

    Montgomery (ankle) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice. Montgomery didn't practice last week due to knee and ankle injuries on his right leg before sitting out the Bears' eventual Week 4 loss to the Giants. This time around, he's only listed with an ankle issue, but it's still keeping him out of drills. Montgomery will have two more chances to get on the field this week, at which point the team may make a ruling on his availability for Sunday's game at Minnesota. If Montgomery requires another absence this weekend, Khalil Herbert will be the primary beneficiary out of the backfield, with rookie sixth-round pick Trestan Ebner available for any lingering touches.

  • Bears' David Montgomery: Out this week

    Montgomery (ankle/knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants. Montgomery hasn't practiced since his early exit from a Week 3 win over Houston. His departure set up a career-best showing from Khalil Herbert, who is inferior to Montgomery as a blocker and receiver but arguably superior as a pure runner. Trestan Ebner took over the backup role after Montgomery's departure last week, while Darrynton Evans could be called up from the practice squad before Sunday. Herbert figures to start and get the bulk of carries.

  • Bears' David Montgomery: Sidelined for another practice

    Montgomery (ankle/knee) was a non-participant in Thursday's practice. Sidelined for the second practice in a row, Montgomery is looking uncertain to play in Sunday's game against the Giants while he manages the two lower-body injuries. Unless Montgomery is able to get in some on-field work Friday, he'll likely sit out the Week 4 contest, which would pave the way for Khalil Herbert to take on a workhorse role out of the Chicago backfield.

  • Bears' David Montgomery: Skips practice Wednesday

    Montgomery (ankle/knee) didn't take part in practice Wednesday. Montgomery exited this past Sunday's win against the Texans in the first half, leaving him with a paltry three carries for 11 yards and no targets. Afterward, head coach Matt Eberflus termed Montgomery "day-to-day," and he provided that same label for the running back's status Wednesday, according to Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic. Montgomery will have two more practice sessions to make an appearance this week before the Bears potentially give him a designation for Sunday's contest at the Giants. If Montgomery is limited or sidelined this weekend, Khalil Herbert again will get work in the Chicago backfield, which amounted to 22 touches for 169 yards from scrimmage and two rushing scores in Week 3 in place of Montgomery.

  • Bears' David Montgomery: Day-to-day per coach

    Coach Matt Eberflus said Montgomery (knee/ankle) is day-to-day after exiting early in Sunday's 23-20 win over the Texans, Courtney Cronin of ESPN reports. Eberflus described Montgomery's day-to-day label as a positive development after he was deemed doubtful to return during the game. Khalil Herbert rushed for 157 yards and two touchdowns after replacing Montgomery, so Herbert has likely earned a more significant portion of the workload in Chicago's run-heavy offense moving forward even if Montgomery's ready to return as soon as Week 4 against the Giants.

  • Bears' David Montgomery: Exits Sunday's game

    Montgomery was forced out of Sunday's game against the Texans with a knee/ankle injury, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports. Prior to his exit from the contest, Montgomery carried three times for 11 yards. In his absence, Khalil Herbert is next up for the Bears' backfield touches, with Trestan Ebner in reserve.

  • Bears' David Montgomery: Injures leg Sunday

    Montgomery suffered an apparent injury to his lower right leg during Sunday's game against the Texans, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports. Montgomery remained on the turf during the Bears' second drive of the game and eventually required assistance from team trainers to get to the sideline. He paid a visit to the sideline tent and eventually went to the locker room, but the nature of his health concern isn't known. Khalil Herbert entered the contest in Montgomery's place.

  • Bears' David Montgomery: Contrarian DFS Play

    Reports of David Montgomery's demise were greatly exaggerated. He's averaging 18.5 touches and 93 yards per game. We just need to get him into the end zone. That shouldn't be a problem against a Texans defense that gave up two scores to James Robinson in Week 1 and should have given up two more to Travis Etienne.

  • Bears' David Montgomery: Racks up 136 scrimmage yards

    Montgomery rushed 15 times for 122 yards and caught both of his targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 27-10 loss to Green Bay. Montgomery struggled to get going in sloppy Week 1 conditions, but he was remarkably efficient in Week 2 considering Chicago's passing game didn't present a credible threat to the defense, as Justin Fields threw for just 70 yards. Khalil Herbert got just five touches in this one, so Montgomery's still the clear lead back for the Bears. Montgomery's role as the focal point of Chicago's run-heavy offense has him well positioned for a strong Week 3 performance against the Texans.

  • Bears' David Montgomery: Bust Alert (Start/Sit)

    I'm starting to fear that David Montgomery could be a bust for the full season after what happened in Week 1 against the 49ers. The concerns over the offensive line were more than justified, and Khalil Herbert looked like the better Bears running back. Against San Francisco, Montgomery had 17 carries for 26 yards, along with three catches for 24 yards on four targets. Herbert had nine carries for 45 yards and a touchdown and one catch for minus-2 yards. We'll see how both do against the Packers, but Montgomery should be considered a flex option at best. Hopefully he does well so we can start him with confidence moving forward.

  • Bears' David Montgomery: Bust Candidate (Lineup Decisions)

    Montgomery has two career touchdowns (one receiving) in five meetings against Green Bay. He's also exceeded 15 touches twice. He's also never beaten the Packers. I'd rather call him a flex and start Darrell Henderson, Travis Etienne and Cordarrelle Patterson than Montgomery this week.

  • Bears' David Montgomery: Inefficient in victory

    Montgomery rushed 17 times for 26 yards and caught three passes for 24 yards in the Bears' 19-10 win over the 49ers on Sunday. Not only did Montgomery have a difficult matchup while running behind a revamped offensive line, but he played on a rain-soaked field that limited both offenses. Unlike last year, he didn't completely dominate carries, as Khalil Herbert had nine rushing attempts while scoring a rushing touchdown. We'll learn if the backfield split is going to be a trend when the Bears travel to Green Bay next week.

  • Bears' David Montgomery: Plays in preseason finale

    Montgomery (undisclosed) ran for 28 yards on nine carries in Chicago's preseason game against Cleveland on Saturday. Montgomery's undisclosed issue seems to be of minimal concern at this point, or else it would be odd for Chicago to give him nine carries in this game. Khalil Herbert looks like a competent backup to Montgomery, but Montgomery should be the lead man in a run-heavy Bears offense in 2022.

  • Bears' David Montgomery: Saturday status uncertain

    Montgomery (undisclosed) will have his status for Saturday's game against the Browns determined based upon how he does at practice this week, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports. Montgomery dealt with an undisclosed injury two weeks ago, and he returned to the practice field Monday. As yet, there's been no suggestion he might miss Week 1, but Khalil Herbert (undisclosed) remains a threat to siphon off touches depending on the health of both backs to begin the season.

  • Bears' David Montgomery: Not expected to play Saturday

    Montgomery (undisclosed) and the Chicago starters are unlikely to play Saturday against Cleveland, Alyssa Barbieri of USA Today reports. Montgomery currently is day-to-day with an undisclosed injury. Assuming he and other key Bears sit out, he'll play next Week 1 against the 49ers, as long as he's recovered from his health concern.

  • Bears' David Montgomery: Not slated to play Thursday

    Montgomery was not in uniform for warmups ahead of Thursday's preseason game against the Seahawks, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports. With Montgomery not in line to play Thursday, the Bears will have a chance to evaluate the players behind him on the depth chart, with RB slotting and touches behind Montgomery and Khalil Herbert up for grabs ahead of Week 1.

  • Bears' David Montgomery: Thursday's status uncertain

    Montgomery (undisclosed) will likely see six-to-10 plays in Thursday's game against the Seahawks if he's able to take the field Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports. Montgomery missed last week's game but did return to practice Monday, though his status has yet to be updated for Thursday. Should he play, coach Matt Eberflus said that some guys will get 20 plays, so his playing time could vary.

  • Bears' David Montgomery: Considered day-to-day

    Montgomery is day-to-day with an unspecified injury and isn't likely to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Chiefs, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports. Montgomery's absence could free up more snaps for backup Khalil Herbert, who may or may not be headed for a larger role under a new coaching staff. Montgomery played 75 percent of snaps in his active games last year, but Herbert did solid work in relief when Monty missed time, running for 344 yards at a clip of 4.4 YPC in a four-game stretch Weeks 5-8. While his rookie year was otherwise quiet, Herbert at least did enough to have a safe lead over Darrynton Evans and Trestan Ebner for Chicago's No. 2 RB role. A shot at something more may depend on Montgomery's performance or health.

  • Bears' David Montgomery: Seeing special-teams reps

    Montgomery has been seeing reps both at running back and on special teams during training camp practices, Kevin Fishbain and Adam Jahns of The Athletic report. Given that he's been a three-down back when healthy over the last few years, Montgomery's presence on the Bears' kick-return unit has been somewhat surprising. Although his involvement on special teams may not mean that Montgomery's status as the Bears' clear top back is in question, it at least has to be considered a possibility that he could yield more work with Khalil Herbert in 2022.

  • Bears' David Montgomery: Could trade carries for targets?

    New Bears coach Matt Eberflus believes Montgomery has the skills to thrive as a pass catcher, but it is possible the running back shares more carries with his backups under offensive coordinator Luke Getsy, who comes from a Green Bay system that utilizes multiple backs, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports. Montgomery played 74.3 percent of snaps in his active games in 2020 and 74.6 percent in 2021, while Packers RB Aaron Jones has never gone higher than 61.5 percent. Of course, Getsy was the QBs coach and then pass-game coordinator in Green Bay, making it unlikely he had much say in the RB usage. Even so, there's a good case for giving Montgomery a little more rest this year, after backup Khalil Herbert averaged 86 rushing yards per game in a four-week stretch last October. A knee sprain caused Montgomery to miss multiple games for the first time, and he didn't have much luck on the ground thereafter, averaging 3.5 YPC and 60 rushing yards per game over the final nine contests. He did average four catches per game in the same stretch, essentially returning to his 2020 level of receiving involvement after seeing limited chances early in the year (six catches over the first four weeks). He comes with many of the same drawbacks under a new coaching staff, namely the likelihood of being stuck in a poor offense, though it is possible the Bears' lack of talent encourages more targets sent to the running backs. Montgomery told reporters he isn't worried about getting a new contract as he enters the fourth and final season of his rookie deal.
