While the Green Bay Packers' defense received a boost from the return of Damarious Randall, the offense regained one of its top players as well. On Tuesday, lead running back Ty Montgomery returned to practice after missing a week with an unspecified leg injury.

Montgomery did not practice last week with a soft-tissue injury in his leg, leaving the bulk of the work with the No. 1 offense to rookie tailback Jamaal Williams. Though Montgomery's presence in the backfield didn't impact the Packers' planning for last Saturday's preseason tilt in Washington, he remains a vital piece of the offense and one that could use as much work to improve his pass protection and ball security as possible.

With Montgomery back in the fold, Green Bay's offense appears set to feature all of its preferred starters for Saturday's preseason game against the Denver Broncos. Starters tend to see their most extended work during the third exhibition game, and Montgomery should receive more work as a ball carrier than he has since the conclusion of the 2016 season.
