Bears placed David Montgomery (knee) on injured reserve.
Montgomery will miss at least three games now, but he could remain on injured reserve for longer. Initial reports on his knee injury indicated that he would be out for about a month so moving him to injured reserve was mostly a formality. Damien Williams projects to see the bulk of Montgomery's touches while he is sidelined. Khalil Herbert, a sixth-round pick from the Bears' 2021 draft class, will back up Williams. With a massive workload up for grabs, Williams should be in line for RB2 fantasy numbers until Montgomery returns.
