He adds the Bears are optimistic Montgomery has avoided a serious injury, though the evaluation is ongoing.
Bears HC Matt Nagy confirmed the injury is to Montgomery’s groin, though the team still does not know the severity, per Kevin Fishbain.
The team claimed via Adam Schefter that Montgomery did not need to be carted off and instead walked off the field on his own.
Montgomery slipped while taking a handoff in drills. He immediately appeared to be in considerable pain and had to leave practice.
The team does not believe it to be a knee injury, per Adam Caplan.
More updates are coming with details of Montgomery’s injury but the initial reports appear to indicate it’s not a minor injury.
Montgomery, 23, was drafted by the Bears in the third round out of Iowa State in 2019. He signed a four-year deal worth $4.015 million and is set to make a base salary of $685,136 in 2020.
In 2019, Montgomery appeared in all 16 games for the Bears and rushed 242 times for 889 yards (3.7 YPC) and six touchdowns. He added 25 catches for 185 yards and one touchdown while losing two fumbles.
