The Green Bay Packers have apparently seen enough of Ty Montgomery this season.
The one-time starting running back has been placed on injured reserve, which will end his season. Montgomery has had his moments, but rookie Aaron Jones snatched the top running back role when given the chance.
And that precipitates another roster move. The good news here is the kid who was bomb-ass in the preseason, but literally had no chance to make the roster because of numbers, Michael Clark, has been brought up to the active roster.
Clark is a former basketball player, who played just one year of football at Marshall. That was the first year he played football since his freshman year of high school. However, Clark was one of the stars of training camp.
A lot of times, that doesn’t translate into anything. However, it appears Clark can play. That said, Mike McCarthy regularly only deploys three receivers.
They are Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams and Randall Cobb. Has anyone filed a missing persons report for Geronimo Allison? Where the hell is that guy?
We’d love to see Clark get some snaps, but it seems that’s highly unlikely.
Montgomery didn’t necessarily need to be put on IR. He had a rid injury that was going to heal, but the Packers have seen a lot from Jones and Jamaal Williams.
In retrospect, it appears the Packers and Ty Montgomery might be finished.
