Can We Give Up On Ty Montgomery Now?

Ty Montgomery

Like you, we’d really love to see what a healthy Ty Montgomery can do on the football field.

When will that day come?

It’s pretty clear it won’t come this week. In fact, Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy made it seem like that moment won’t be coming anytime soon.

“He’s not making progress,” McCarthy said on Monday. “You try to reach different thresholds and he’s not getting there.”

Montgomery sprained his ankle in week 6 when the Packers played San Diego. He hasn’t played since.

How he’s not making any progress at all has us befuddled, though.

Seemingly, the only way someone wouldn’t make progress with an injury is if that injury was misdiagnosed.

We’re not saying that’s what happened here, but if it had, it wouldn’t be the first time the Packers have bungled this sort of situation. They’ve already misinterpreted Montgomery’s injury.

At first, it was your garden variety ankle sprain. A couple weeks ago it suddenly got labeled as the more severe high-ankle sprain.

So how long before we learn that Montgomery actually tore some ligaments?

Whatever is going on, we’re not holding our breath that he’ll return. Putting Montgomery on injured reserve now seems like a possibility for when the Packers are ready to activate Andrew Quarless.

    High ankle sprains (if that is what it is) can be career threatening. Let us trust that this is not the case.

    Ahh yes, more fantastic news from Ted’s latest draft class of hidden gems. Just for some extra laughs, these dungeons and dragons addicts are 3 point favorites in Detroit next week for the next episode in the great Packer collapse of 2015. Happy wagering.

    Lets do the right thing and go hard after Alshon Jeffery next spring. He has all the qualities the Pack needs at WR, big, strong, tough, and he will catch the damn ball. Jordy wont be Jordy yet, takes another year to fully come back. If Ted does nothing in FA or the draft, next year will be the same shit with the WRs.

    TT “the frugal GM” will continue to be who we know he is, that is until M. Murphy lights a fire under his ass . . . well, that will never happen. Come on guys! how often in all of the years that TT has been here has he done anything in FA that was worth a shit? Two times is what I remember! This has taken place over a total of 10 fucking years! Ten fucking years people!! Let that sink in! How many “Blue Chip” players has he missed out on? Including times when both Favre and Rodgers pleaded with him to pick certain people up! Too many to mention! BTW, those people that Favre and Rodgers wanted? They tore it up after they went somewhere else . . .

    Do you not watch games skinny? Jeffrey has had a history of drops. Last year he was notorious for it. Besides I doubt the bears let him go, two there is no way the packers pay three receivers $10 million annualy

    Not to mention Jeffrey has a long history of injuries himself.

    I really would not be surprised if some time in January Montgomery, Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams all have unexpected off season surgery, explaining what’s really been going on.

    That would explain a lot Deep.
    They should have the PS4 controller surgically removed from DAdams hands in the process….
