The Green Bay Packers announced Friday that they’ve placed RB Ty Montgomery on injured reserve and promoted WR Michael Clark to their active roster.
Montgomery has been sidelined with fractured ribs for a few weeks now along with a wrist and with Aaron Jones getting closer to returning from an MCL injury, it appears as though the Packers elected to shut him down for the season.
Green Bay has already brought back OT Jason Spriggs from injured reserve and their last designation is almost certainly being reserved for QB Aaron Rodgers, so odds are that Montgomery is done for the season.
Montgomery, 24, is a former third-round pick by the Packers in the 2015 NFL Draft. He is in the third-year of a four-year, $2.949 million rookie contract and is set to make a base salary of $615,000 this season.
In 2017, Montgomery has appeared in eight games for the Packers and rushed for 273 yards on 71 carries (3.8 YPC) to go along with 23 receptions for 173 yards receiving and four total touchdowns.
