The Chicago Bears received a serious scare on Sunday after running back David Montgomery went down with a knee injury. It didn't look good, and there were immediate fears it could put his season in jeopardy.

However, Chicago got a bit of good news on Montgomery's injury after the game.

David Montgomery Injury Update

The Bears don't fear that it is an ACL injury for Montgomery, which is encouraging to hear. Seeing the RB down on the field and clutching at his left knee was a cause for concern that it could be something major.

Montgomery will undergo more tests on Monday, though it appears he avoided the worst-case scenario.

The third-year pro would be slated to miss at least a couple weeks with a hyperextended knee, but that'd be a much better outcome than losing him for the entire year.

Montgomery has recorded 309 yards and 3 touchdowns across the first four games this season. Any absence would be a blow considering how this struggling offense has depended on the ground game to this point.

The Bears may be without Montgomery as they turn their attention toward a Week 5 matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders.
