Ty Montgomery injury update: How to handle Packers RB vs. Ravens

The Packers’ backfield is a mess heading into their Week 11 clash with Baltimore.

The Green Bay Packers have ruled out Ty Montgomery for Week 11 vs. the Baltimore Ravens.

Montgomery missed practice this week due to a rib injury. The good news is Packers head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters on Friday that he won't be out for a long time.

Still, this is a tough break for Montgomery, who was poised to retake his job as the Packers’ top running back with Aaron Jones out. Jones suffered a knee injury against the Chicago Bears in Week 10 will keep him out 3-6 weeks.

That was the same game in which Montgomery got hurt, though it looks like he could return as early as Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: With Montgomery out, Jamaal Williams has become a hot waiver-wire target this week, though you should probably keep him on the bench against a stout Ravens defense. This would have been a good matchup for Montgomery since he’s the better pass-catching back.
