    Ty Montgomery To Injured Reserve

    Friday, December 1, 4:33 PM

    Green Bay Packers running back Ty Montgomery (wrist, ribs) was placed on the Injured Reserve on Friday. Earlier Friday, Montgomery was ruled out of Sunday's game, his third straight absence, and now he is done for the season. Look at Jamaal Williams as a low-tier RB2 this week and Aaron Jones (knee) as a punt flex play against Tampa Bay on Sunday. Montgomery can safely be dropped in redraft leagues.

    Ty Montgomery Biography

    Early Years and High School

    Ty Montgomery is a Texas resident, but he was born in Mississippi on January 22, 1993. In an auspicious beginning to his career as an all-around athletic jack of all trades, Montgomery stood out as a star in four different high school sports. He ran 100m in 10.81 seconds and 200m in 22.2. He also did yeoman work on the football field for St. Mark's School in Dallas. In his time on the team Montgomery caught the ball 118 times and made 36 touchdowns.


    Montgomery attended Stanford University on the California coast. He was acclaimed All-American as a return specialist in his junior year, and in 2013 he held the national record for the the highest average kickoff return. He had a total of 172 receptions over the course of his college career, earning a total of 2,125 yards and 15 touchdowns. Montgomery's college highlight reel can be seen here.

    NFL Draft

    Montgomery put out an impressive set of statistics, including a 40 time of 4.55 seconds and 40.5 inches vertical jump. The Green Bay Packers drafted him on the third round in 2015. He chose the #88 for his jersey and reported to camp for training as a wide receiver. Because of Montgomery's shorter stature and heavier weight, he was widely seen as an unusual pick for the third round. In fact, there have been only three other wide receivers with similar statistics in the history of the league. Montgomery's full draft profile can be seen here.

    2015 NFL Season

    Montgomery's rookie season with the Green Bay Packers was cut short after only a few games. A Week 6 game against the San Diego Charger ended with an injury to his ankle, sidelining him for the remainder of the season. He received the ball 15 times while he was playing, running it back an average of 9.1 yards each completion for a total of 136 yards.

    2016 NFL Season

    Montgomery's 2016 season began slowly, with only 17 snaps on offense coming to him and no catches at all. But a game against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6 turned it all around. In one game he received the ball 10 times and ran it almost a thousand yards. He matched that performance the next week in a game against the Bears, and the coach declared permanently placed in the running back position on December 13. In the ensuing game, a rematch against the Bears, Montgomery rewarded the coach's decision with a spectacular performance. Completing 16 receptions for 162 yards returned, Montgomery played his best professional game ever. He lead the Packers in rushing yards for the 2016 season. A video summary of his highlights for the year can be found here.

    Personal Life

    Ty Montgomery is engaged to his long time girlfriend Lexie Dierker. They intend to be married in 2017. His Twitter handle is @TyMontgomery2 and his Instagram is @ty_kingdomcitizen. He has two more years to run on a four year contract with the Green Bay Packers, earning a substantial signing bonus and an annual salary of $737,199 for a total of $2,948,795.
