The Chicago Bears were the recipients of great news on Friday when it was announced that leading rusher David Montgomery had been removed from the injury report.
The 24-year-old was dealing with shoulder, groin and glute issues throughout the week that limited his practice participation. Now that it looks like those injuries are a thing of the past, Montgomery has been given the green light to suit up against the Green Bay Packers this weekend.
David Montgomery Injury Update
Montgomery saw a whopping 29 touches (21 carries and 8 receptions) in Week 13, so it's not too much of a surprise that he's banged up.
In fact, injuries throughout the 2021 NFL season have held Montgomery to just eight games played. Still, he's done a lot with that opportunity, averaging 4.2 yards on 134 carries while also finding the end zone four times.
With a 4-8 record, there isn't a whole lot for Bears fans to look forward to aside from the 2022 NFL Draft. At least a healthy Montgomery can give them something to cheer about down the stretch.
The Bears are currently 12-point underdogs heading into the Week 14 Sunday Night Football matchup, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
