Ty Montgomery injury: Stanford star out of Rose Bowl

Montgomery was injured on a kickoff early in the fourth quarter.

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Stanford wide receiver Ty Montgomery was injured early in the fourth quarter of the Cardinal's Rose Bowl matchup against Michigan State. Montgomery went down on a kickoff return.

Following a Spartans touchdown to take a 24-17 lead, Montgomery ran a kick back up the middle of the field and went down awkwardly, apparently suffering a leg injury. He was slow to get up and did not play on the Cardinal's next offensive possession. Whether or not he will be able to get back in the game is not yet official, but he was last seen on the training table without his helmet.

Montgomery had three catches for 21 yards before getting hurt. After taking an early 10-0 lead, Stanford has been outscored, 24-7, as Michigan State has taken control on both sides of the ball. Spartans quarterback Connor Cook has thrown for more than 300 yards and two touchdowns.
