Share post:

Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery avoided a major knee injury in Sunday’s game, ESPN and NFL Network reported.

Montgomery is undergoing further tests Monday, per ESPN, but the team doesn’t think he injured his left ACL. NFL Network reported late Sunday night the third-year RB hyperextended his knee.

Montgomery exited Sunday’s 24-14 victory against the Detroit Lions in the fourth quarter. He rushed for 106 yards and two touchdown on 23 carries.

The 100-yard outing was his second of the season and he leads the Bears with 309 rushing yards and three scores.

The 24-year-old Montgomery rushed for 889 yards as a rookie in 2019 and 1,070 last season.

Backup running back Damien Williams sustained a thigh bruise Sunday but is expected to be OK, NFL Network said.

Williams, 29, has tallied 114 yards from scrimmage and one TD this season and would be in line to start next Sunday at Las Vegas if Montgomery can’t go.
