Packers coach Mike McCarthy suggested Ty Montgomery could become more of a "hybrid" receiver-running back in 2018.
Drafted to play receiver out of Stanford in 2015, Montgomery instead spent most of the last two seasons at running back. Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams showed more as runners last season, however, so Montgomery's role seems likely to be tweaked. If the Packers release Randall Cobb, we'd be interested to see if Montgomery would be given an opportunity to earn snaps at slot receiver. Feb 28 - 7:32 PM

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky believes the time might be right for Green Bay to move Ty Montgomery back to wide receiver.

Montgomery was an every-down running back the first three weeks of last season, but the injuries started kicking in soon after. 41 of his 71 carries came in Weeks 1-3 before suffering a wrist injury five snaps into Week 4. He then sustained broken ribs just a couple weeks later. Montgomery was eventually placed on I.R. after carrying the ball just 14 times Weeks 8-10. His body simply didn't hold up in the backfield, and the Packers have Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones as better options. At receiver, Montgomery could replace Randall Cobb in the slot.

Ty Montgomery will undergo wrist surgery.

Montgomery first injured his wrist in Week 4. He played through it, but it wasn’t getting any better. Montgomery will get surgery now that he’s on IR. He should be ready for OTAs.

Packers placed RB Ty Montgomery (wrist) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Montgomery had been dealing with fractured ribs for most of the year but his wrist injury sent him to IR. It ends an ineffective first full season at running back for Montgomery, who averaged just 3.8 YPC. Montgomery likely won't have more than a pass-down role in 2018.

Ty Montgomery (ribs) is out for Week 13 against the Buccaneers.

Kevin King (shoulder) has also been ruled out. This marks Montgomery's third straight absence. The early rule-out suggests Montgomery was never close to playing, casting doubt on his status for Week 14. Aaron Jones (knee) resumed practicing on Thursday and would likely work in a committee with Jamaal Williams if he plays this week.

Ty Montgomery (ribs) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Montgomery has made little progress in his recovery from a rib injury and could be headed for another absence Sunday against Tampa Bay. Jamaal Williams has handled most of the Packers' backfield work recently, though Aaron Jones (knee) could be back this week after returning to practice on Thursday.

Ty Montgomery (ribs) is not practicing Wednesday.

Aaron Jones (knee) is also not practicing Wednesday, though both players were on the field working with the rehab group. Coach Mike McCarthy said there's still a chance both practice this week. For now, Jamaal Williams remains atop the depth chart and a volume-based RB2 play against the Bucs.
Wed, Nov 29, 2017 01:02:00 PM

Ty Montgomery (ribs) is doubtful for Week 12 against the Steelers.

Montgomery didn't practice all week and barring a miraculous comeback, will not play Sunday night at Pittsburgh. With Aaron Jones (knee) also on the shelf, Jamaal Williams will draw another start for Green Bay. Williams has logged 20-plus touches in each of his last two games, though he's averaged a disappointing 3.26 yards per carry over that span. He'll be on the RB2/3 borderline for Week 12.
Fri, Nov 24, 2017 04:21:00 PM

Ty Montgomery (ribs) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

He hasn't practiced at all this week and still looks like a long shot to play against the Steelers. Coach Mike McCarthy refused to rule him out, saying Montgomery would need to practice Saturday if he wants to play Sunday. Jamaal Williams should be in line for 15-plus carries but comes with little upside.
Fri, Nov 24, 2017 11:05:00 AM

Ty Montgomery (ribs) did not practice Thursday.

Montgomery also sat out on Wednesday, suggesting he is not going to play on Sunday night against the Steelers. Aaron Jones (knee) also remains sidelined, leaving Jamaal Williams to once again carry the load. It is not a good matchup, but Williams will be a volume-based RB2.
Thu, Nov 23, 2017 10:17:00 AM

Ty Montgomery (ribs) is not practicing Wednesday.

Montgomery's injury isn't believed to be serious, but he's been battling it for most of the season and aggravated in Week 10 before missing Week 11. With Montgomery and Aaron Jones (knee) looking doubtful and Devante Mays fumbling his first two carries last week, it'll likely be all the Jamaal Williams he can handle against the Steelers. Volume puts Williams on the RB2/3 map.
Wed, Nov 22, 2017 12:01:00 PM

Ty Montgomery (ribs) is out for Week 11 against the Ravens.

As expected. Montgomery didn't even practice this week after aggravating a rib injury in Sunday's win over Chicago. With Aaron Jones (sprained MCL) also out, Jamaal Williams will seize the lead role in Green Bay's backfield. He'll be a volume-based RB2/3 in a tough matchup against a stout Ravens' front seven. Fantasy owners should consider TyMont week-to-week.
Fri, Nov 17, 2017 04:28:00 PM

Coach Mike McCarthy said Ty Montgomery (ribs) is unlikely to play Week 11 against the Ravens.

McCarthy said it's not a long-term concern, but it will be Jamaal Williams and Devante Mays this week in a tough spot. Williams managed just 67 yards on 20 carries in relief against the Bears last week. He's low-upside RB3 play who should get volume. Williams will likely need a TD to be worth it.

Ty Montgomery (ribs) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Montgomery aggravated a rib injury last week and looks like a long shot to play Sunday against Baltimore. With Aaron Jones (MCL) also sitting, Jamaal Williams should carry the load in Week 11. Consider him a volume-based RB2.
Thu, Nov 16, 2017 01:43:00 PM

Ty Montgomery (ribs) is not practicing Wednesday.

Coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday he's holding out hope Montgomery can play against the Ravens, but the week isn't off to a good start. Montgomery has been battling the injured ribs for a couple months now. If he can't play, Jamaal Williams and Devante Mays will handle the backfield.
