Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 10 vs CHI (6 / 54 / 1 rush, 2 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)
Montgomery left the game with a rib injury, but was able to break a long touchdown run in the second quarter. The offense did a great job opening a hole for Montgomery, and he hit that gap quickly before accelerating into the open field. Nobody came anywhere near him as he easily scored.
2017 Week 9 vs DET (5 / 33 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 18 / 0 rec)
Aaron Jones got the start but Montgomery got more carries and was on the field for more snaps. Montgomery looked better on the few carries he got, but the Packers fell behind so completely that the ground game was mostly abandoned and when it wasn't, the runners often faced stacked boxes as the Detroit Lions didn't really believe Brett Hundley could beat them.
2017 Week 7 vs NO (4 / 6 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Montgomery was clearly the No. 2 back on Sunday, and was on the field for just seven snaps. We're unclear if he is still unhealthy, but ultimately the only thing which matters is production and if you aren't on the field, you don't produce.
2017 Week 6 vs MIN (10 / 28 / 0 rush, 3 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)
Back in the lineup and ostensibly healthy again, Montgomery struggled against the Minnesota Vikings and his most notable moment was dropping what would have been a surefire touchdown pass. On the play, Montgomery slipped out past the linebackers on a route and was wide open for a pass from quarterback Brett Hundley, who delivered a decent throw, which was absolutely manageable for Montgomery. Unfortunately, the running back didn't have a firm hold on the ball when he hit the ground while extending for the score and it came loose. Upon review, the pass was ruled incomplete. The Packers had to settle for a field goal, rather than a touchdown which would have tied the game.
2017 Week 4 vs CHI (5 / 28 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Montgomery left the game after the first drive with what appeared to be a chest injury and later was reported as a rib injury. There have been some conflicting reports as to the severity of the injury, with some saying Montgomery has a broken rib and others saying it is a bruise or fracture, both of which he could play through.
2017 Week 3 vs CIN (12 / 35 / 0 rush, 12 / 8 / 15 / 0 rec)
Montgomery had a tough game, as the makeshift offensive line gave him nowhere to go. He spent a lot of time getting targeted out of the backfield, totaling 18 passes thrown his way, though like when he was running the ball, there was almost nowhere to run to. He also left the game for a bit with an arm injury, but returned.
2017 Week 2 vs ATL (10 / 35 / 1 rush, 7 / 6 / 75 / 1 rec)
The Packers fell so far behind, so quickly that Montgomery barely ran the ball during this game, but with Jordy Nelson and then Randall Cobb hurt, he saw a massive uptick in targets, which led to a very productive day, from a yardage standpoint. He also scored twice, once near the end of the first quarter as he bulled his way through two defenders for the score and the second time on a 1-yard shovel pass from Aaron Rodgers when the game was mostly over with. Montgomery's ability as a receiving weapon will come in very handy of Cobb and/or Nelson are out for a length of time.
2017 Week 1 vs SEA (19 / 54 / 1 rush, 4 / 4 / 39 / 0 rec)
This was Montgomery's chance to prove he should have the full load of carries, but his paltry 2.8 yards per carry is a little concerning. Still, the Packers look like they are dedicated to making him the main back, and gave him 23 touches to erase any doubt observers had. The Seahawks are a tough run defense though, and they hit him at the line regularly and swarmed him on the rare occasions when he got free. He did look good running the ball on his touchdown, which came after the defense forced a fumble during a sack of Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson. That score showed you a couple of things to like as Montgomery was quick to get the ball, showed good vision to find the seam, then a nice ability to get skinny and get through early traffic. Montgomery was stopped at about the one and bulled his way over the goal line for the first Packers touchdown of the year. Montgomery did leave the game briefly with an ankle or foot issue, but came back in.
