Ty Montgomery looked to be hitting his stride before an ankle injury wiped out the remainder of his season just six games in. At this stage, Montgomery’s 2016 production is guesswork, but there was enough to give cause for excitement in 2015.
Why he should make the roster: Montgomery was given a small window to show what he can do before an injury derailed his season. In that time, he began to become a bigger part on offense and as a returner.
He flashed the ability to add yards after the catch and has the strength to run over defenders like a running back. When fully healthy, he’ll have the opportunity to pickup where he left off.
Why the Packers should move on: As is always the case with injured players, it’s tough to know how they will respond. This was a significant injury that required surgery, and who’s to say it won’t impact his game moving forward?
Montgomery won’t be given a free pass to the 53-man roster in camp, and while there’s a strong chance he makes the team, the key will be proving he’s healthy enough to become a key factor on offense again.
