Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 16 vs PIT (2 / 7 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 1 / 0 rec)
Montgomery may be the number two back here, but that still doesn't amount to anything. He is mostly relegated to special teams, and wasn't even a factor there on Sunday.
2019 Week 15 vs BAL (2 / 5 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
As much as the Jets don't seem to really know what to do with LeVeon Bell, they've even less of an idea what they signed Montgomery for. With just three touches on twelve snaps -- and only seven on special teams -- Montgomery had better be on time for the bus because the Jets don't seem to remember he exists most of the time.
2019 Week 14 vs MIA (9 / 31 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)
Montgomery saw nine carries, by far the most in his Jets career, resulting in his highest amount of rushing, receiving and combined yards as well. He was tied with Jamison Crowder for the second most receiving yards on the team as well, and had a key reception which he took upfield for a first down to set up the Jets' winning field goal.
2019 Week 13 vs CIN (1 / 7 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 1 / 0 rec)
Montgomery continues to be more of a kick return specialist than anything else, and he was on the field three times as much on special teams than he was during offensive plays.
2019 Week 12 vs OAK (5 / 2 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 21 / 0 rec)
Montgomery got significant carries in the third quarter, but his biggest play came at 8:44 in the fourth quarter when the Jets faced a 3rd and 16. On the play, quarterback Sam Darnold threw a short dump pass to Montgomery who found nothing but wide open space to run. The Raiders seemed a bit slow in responding, and so Montgomery gained a first down and 21 yards.
2019 Week 11 vs WAS (2 / 11 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Wondering where Montgomery was for the last few games? Well we finally had proof of life, as he actually saw the field on something other than special teams. It was only two carries, though he was also the target on Darnold's interception. On top of that, Montgomery fumbled on a return, though Washington couldn't capitalize.
2019 Week 7 vs NE (2 / 9 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Out of 61 offensive snaps, Montgomery was on the field for just seven of them. He's not even an afterthought at this point, though he did run the ball well the two times he carried it.
2019 Week 6 vs DAL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 17 / 0 rec)
While Montgomery was only on the field for a grand total of six snaps, he was targeted on three of those and caught all three balls. He has still not broken out in any meaningful way and is not getting any carries either.
2019 Week 5 vs PHI (2 / 1 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Once again, Montgomery is less than an afterthought on offense, with just eight snaps and two carries. One he grabbed two yards while the other he was dropped for a loss.
2019 Week 3 vs NE (2 / 1 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Montgomery was on the field for just eight offensive snaps and did very little with those. He is clearly well behind Bell and not the factor people thought he might be in the passing game.
2019 Week 2 vs CLE (3 / 25 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 15 / 0 rec)
Aside from the possibility that Montgomery could be pressed into service as a backup quarterback if Luke Falk was hurt, Montgomery didn't see much action. He did have a pair of nice runs up the middle, one in the second quarter and one in the fourth, but he's not seeing much use right now and after two games it's clear hopes it would be otherwise are growing dim.
2019 Week 1 vs BUF (2 / 4 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
For all the talk of getting Ty Montgomery involved, that didn't happen. Not only was Montgomery barely utilized, he was only on the field for five snaps of offense. Both his runs came in the late third/early fourth quarter and he was not targeted at all in the passing game.
