The Green Bay Packers haven’t officially ruled out Ty Montgomery for Week 11, but don’t expect the running back to suit up. On Friday, head coach Mike McCarthy said he anticipates Montgomery’s rib injury to keep him out of Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens.
Montgomery has missed time already this season, initially cracking multiple ribs in Week 4’s Thursday night tilt against the Chicago Bears. The running back re-aggravated the injury last Sunday. McCarthy says he doesn’t expect Montgomery’s ribs to become a “long-term concern,” suggesting he can return as soon as Week 12.
Assuming Montgomery misses the game, Jamaal Williams, Devante Mays, and Aaron Ripkowski would rotate in the Packers’ backfield on Sunday. Williams led all Green Bay players in attempts last weekend, rushing 20 times for 67 yards. He also caught the only pass thrown in his direction for 7 yards. Health permitting, Williams should receive most of the backfield work against the Ravens on Sunday.
