5 running backs the Green Bay Packers could acquire

The Packers haven't confirmed the nature of Montgomery's rib injury but are seemingly confident he's on a track to miss no games.

Injuries dampened an otherwise strong performance by the Packers, particularly a frightening hit to receiver Davante Adams from the Bears' Danny Trevathan.

Those injuries paved the way for rookie running back Aaron Jones to play a big role.

The Packers next play at Dallas on Sunday, Oct. 8.

On the opening series, Ty Montgomery carried five times for 28 yards before heading to the locker room.

The Green Bay Packers received some good news on running back Ty Montgomery, who left Thursday night's win over the Chicago Bears after suffering a rib injury. 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. Williams carried four times for 11 yards and did not look as explosive as Jones, nor did he create as much for himself.

The rookie out of UTEP was the last remaining healthy back active for the game, with fellow rookie Devante Mays inactive. But even a torn ligament in his ankle that cost him a decent chunk of time couldn't keep him from racking up over 4,000 career rushing yards for the Miners, creating a lengthy highlight reel along the way.

Jamaal Williams was also injured in Thursday night's game. Montgomery has also caught 18 passes for 129 yards and one touchdown.

Jones is a safety valve but at least worth considering with Green Bay's backfield dealing with so many health concerns.
