Ty Montgomery May Play Week 5 Despite Rib Injury

Sep 30, 2017 1:17 PM

Ty Montgomery is listed as day-to-day with a rib injury and could play in Week 5 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Montgomery was off to a strong start with 28 yards on five carries in the first six plays from scrimmage before he left in the first quarter with the injury.

The Packers had said Montgomery had suffered broken ribs.

"Really, every injury is different," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Friday. "We're talking about injuries that the specifics of it are different, where exactly it's located, type of equipment and definitely the position that you play. I really don't have a clear answer on exactly what Ty is dealing with and how he can move forward. I know today the conversation with the trainers, as far as his conversation with the trainers, he's preparing to get ready to play in Dallas. That's really what this weekend is for. Tuesday we'll really get our hands around it, and obviously, we'll get you the injury information on Wednesday."

NFLPA Argues No Irreparable Harm If Ezekiel Elliott Plays

Sep 16, 2017 7:23 PM

The NFLPA argued that the NFL would not endure irreparable harm if Ezekiel Elliott continues to play while his six-game suspension plays out in the courts.

The NFLPA made its argument through a legal filing Saturday with the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, saying Elliott "stands to lose nearly half a season in a career that is notoriously short and precarious, and competitive opportunities are irretrievable once lost."

On Friday, the NFL asked the appeals court to overrule the Texas federal judge who granted a preliminary injunction of Elliott's suspension. The league is seeking a decision as early as Tuesday and as late as Sept. 26.

The NFL ultimately wants to get the case moved from Texas to the Southern District of New York. That was the venue for the league's successful appeal after a federal judge had overturned Tom Brady's four-game suspension in the Deflategate case.

The NFL believed Elliott used "physical force" three times in a span of five days in a Columbus, Ohio, apartment, resulting in injuries to Tiffany Thompson's face, neck, shoulders, arms, hands, wrists, hips and knees.
