We would suggest receiver and kick returner Ty Montgomery will be available for the Green Bay Packers following the bye, but they’re obviously in the extra cautious mode when it comes to ankle sprains this season.
So who knows?
That’s what Montgomery has, but it doesn’t sound serious.

Under normal circumstances, we’d think Montgomery would play in two weeks. However, the Packers have kept receiver Davante Adams sidelined for three weeks with what could also be considered a “regular ol’ ankle sprain.”
Adams has said multiple times that he doesn’t have the more severe high-ankle sprain.
We won’t really know anything until next week, but the Packers SHOULD certainly be healthier after the bye than they are right now.
Good, we need him for the long haul, but those ankle injuries have a very nasty habit of hanging around for the entire year. I still wouldn’t expect him to play against Denver, and if he does it wont be 100%
We need Montgomery, Adams, Jones, Cobb, and R. Rodgers at 100 percent for Denver, and there doesn’t seem to be any compelling reason why they wouldn’t be. I hate to say it, but our passing game is really pretty mediocre at this point in time, and with Aaron Rodgers at QB, that just seems astonishing.
The good news is that Denver’s offense with Peyton Manning isn’t scaring anyone either.
Big problem with ankle sprain is that you can’t work out your legs and keep it fit and strong while you’re rehabing. Receivers like Adams, Ty and Lacy rely on their leg power more than anything to accelerate and shift. Takes 4 weeks to just get ankle strong enough to take competitive cuts and acceleration. Then a couple of weeks to build up strength in leg muscles. 6 weeks off is really needed to get back to 100%. I’d rather rest Ty and hope Adams is good to go and Janis gets more reps with Rodgers to get more targets. He can certainly stretch the field. How hard can wheel route be?
