David Montgomery was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice because of a “lightly rolled” ankle.
On Thursday, that “light” injury was enough to keep him off the practice field.
Montgomery was one of four Bears players who did not participate in practice on Thursday. The Bears’ leading rusher’s status for Sunday’s game is in doubt after missing the second practice of the week in its entirety. It’s a tough scene for the Bears offense, which was starting to piece some things together by featuring Montgomery more often in recent weeks.
Instead, the Bears could be going back to the drawing board with Tarik Cohen and Ryan Nall as the only running backs listed behind Montgomery on the depth chart.
Here is a look at the rest of the Bears’ updated injury report:

Tight end Trey Burton (calf), outside linebacker Isaiah Irving (quad), inside linebacker Danny Trevathan (elbow), and tight end Adam Shaheen (foot) were also listed as DNP on the injury report. Shaheen is the newest addition to the group, with a foot injury that kept him off the practice field. It has been a rough few weeks for the Bears’ 2017 second-round pick. Between running the wrong route at the goal-line three weeks ago, muffing a kick-off in a one-score game two Sundays ago, and being a healthy scratch last Sunday, things are tumbling for Shaheen.
We will continue to monitor the injury report for updates as the Bears prepare to take on an equally battered Rams team in prime-time on Sunday.
