Packers running back Ty Montgomery listed as questionable

Packers running back Ty Montgomery listed as questionable

A total of 33 running backs have fumbled more than Montgomery on rushing plays since the beginning of last season, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Montgomery broke multiple ribs on September 28 against the Bears and hasn't played since then.

The Packers have won 10 of their last 11 regular-season games and are tied with Kansas City of the best record in the National Football League over that span. Dating back to 2006, the Packers (31-11, .738) hold the second-best winning percentage in the month of October behind the New England Patriots (40-8, .833). The Packers are 4-1 this season, marking the fourth time since 2006 that Green Bay has won at least four of its first five games (5-0 in 2015 / 5-0 in 2011 / 4-1 in 2007).

GREEN BAY, Wis. - The flak jacket Ty Montgomery would have to wear if he's cleared to play Sunday at Minnesota is bulky and sits just below where the Green Bay Packers running back would need to tuck the ball when he runs.

"I think based on what we've seen in practice, I think he can", Packers running backs coach Ben Sirmans said. "He hasn't obviously taken a hit, but the way they have equipment set up now they can absorb any type of impact". Based on what he's done the past two days, I would say that he's moving around and it seems like he could play. Per usual, tackles David Bakhtiari and Bryan Bulaga are questionable.

"I played with one in high school", Montgomery said.

Although the Packers' offense has overcome the odds of constantly playing with a decimated offensive line to this point, stopping the Vikings' collection of pass rushers may be their most onerous assignment to date. Left guard Lane Taylor has played left tackle the past two weeks. Bulaga returned last week against the Cowboys and appeared to make it through the game without much trouble. Safety Morgan Burnett (hamstring) and cornerback Kevin King (concussion) haven't practiced this week.

The Packers also could be thin in the defensive backfield. Both sustained their injuries last week at Dallas.
