Patriots Waive Ty Montgomery

Friday, December 8, 7:36 PM

The New England Patriots waived running back/wide receiver Ty Montgomery on Friday, a day after their Thursday night upset win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. In Week 14, Montgomery was only on the field for a total of six offensive snaps and caught one pass for 17 yards on two targets in the 21-18 win. The 30-year-old veteran had a mere three rushing attempts for nine yards and five catches on 12 targets for 40 yards in his 13 games with the Patriots this year. Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) is expected to miss some more time with a high-ankle sprain, leaving Ezekiel Elliott as their lead back moving forward. He'll be backed up by JaMycal Hasty and Kevin Harris with Montgomery now out of the picture in New England.

Pierre Strong Jr. Inactive On Saturday

Saturday, January 13, 4:41 PM

Cleveland Browns running back Pierre Strong Jr. (back) has been ruled out ahead of Saturday's Wild-Card game against the Houston Texans. Strong was considered questionable heading into this game due to a back issue. The Browns have decided to take the cautious approach and hold him out of this game. His absence won't have a huge impact on the running game for Cleveland. The expectation is that Jerome Ford and Kareem Hunt will see basically all the carries in the backfield.
