Sacking Aaron Rodgers Isn't Always This Easy

Sacking Aaron Rodgers Isn't Always This Easy

Montgomery broke multiple ribs on September 28 against the Bears and hasn't played since then.

For Packers, linebacker Ahmad Brooks is also listed as doubtful.

The last-minute comeback drive to power the Green Bay Packers to a 35-31 win over the Dallas Cowboys is the main reason why Aaron Rodgers is the NFC Offensive Player of the Week.

According to ESPN's Rob Demovsky, the Packers will "probably" limit Ty Montgomery's (ribs) snaps if he plays against the Vikings in Week 6. Jones' breakout performance in Week 5 has given Green Bay the option to take a more conservative approach with Montgomery, who has been using a flak jacket in practice all week.

"I think based on what we've seen in practice, I think he can", Packers running backs coach Ben Sirmans said. Based on what he's done the past two days, I would say that he's moving around and it seems like he could play. "But once again that's without taking any hits to make that call".

The Syrian civil war has claimed more than 400,000 lives since it started in 2011, and displaced more than 5 million people.

Two other key starters on offense were listed as questionable: left tackle David Bakhtiari (hamstring) and right tackle Bryan Bulaga (ankle).

If Bakhtiari doesn't play, the Packers likely would move left guard Lane Taylor out to left tackle for a third consecutive week, with Justin McCray stepping in at left guard. Bulaga returned last week against the Cowboys and appeared to make it through the game without much trouble.

Cornerback Kevin King is listed as doubtful and if history holds, that means he won't play.

Overall, the Packers will face another challenge on the road in Minnesota, but the Packers are clearly the better team with the better quarterback and are riding high off of that thriller in Dallas last week.

But coach Mike McCarthy isn't concerned that it could present a ball-security problem for Montgomery, who hasn't shown a proclivity for fumbling since he became a full-time running back early last season.
