David Montgomery out for Chicago's preseason opener with 'minor injury'

Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery will not play in Saturday's preseason contest against the Kansas City Chiefs.

What It Means:

After a DNP on Thursday with a "minor injury", Montgomery will sit out on Saturday although it's worth noting head coach Matt Eberflus expects the Bears' running back "gonna be fine." With multiple reports projecting a committee approach in Chicago's backfield under a new coaching staff, Montgomery's workload could see a decrease behind Pro Football Focus' 31st rated offensive line. Per Fantasy Football Calculator in 12-team point per reception leagues, Montgomery's average draft position currently stands in the third round.

Montgomery's 2022 yearly projection includes 252.6 rushing attempts for 1,014.7 yards and 6.9 touchdowns and 39.2 receptions for 309.1 yards and 2.0 receiving touchdowns.
