According to Biggs, Montgomery’s injury will require surgery and lead to the Bears placing him on season-ending injured reserve at some point this week.
Montgomery wound up leaving the game with what appeared to be an ankle injury after he was rolled up on from behind. Montgomery was later carted off the field to the locker room.
Montgomery, 32, signed a one-year, $950,000 contract that included $120,000 guaranteed with the Bears back in April.
It’s very likely that Chicago will place Montgomery on season-ending injured reserve in the coming days and add another lineman.
