David Montgomery “Didn’t Do Much at Practice” As He Takes Cautious Approach to His Return

Chicago Bears

David Montgomery’s groin injury has him in a predicament.

Because while there is growing optimism that Chicago’s running back will play in Week 1, Montgomery sounds like someone willing to approach his return with caution:

Montgomery told reporters at Halas Hall he didn’t do much at practice as a precaution. That’s wise thinking from the second-year back. After all, he shouldn’t want to rush back and possibly risk aggravating the injury to a greater extent. Taking it one day at a time is cliché as heck, but there’s always a morsel of truth in clichés. That’s how they become clichés in the first place.

Ultimately, the non-answer from Montgomery when asked about playing on Sunday is par for the course. But that Montgomery was speaking to the media in the first place feels like a sign that he will be healthy enough to play on Sunday. Or at minimum, be given the green light to get on the field with a managed work load. We’ll continue to monitor the situation and guess we’ll have a better idea on Montgomery’s status by Friday.
