The news could've been a lot worse for Bears running back David Montgomery, who slipped and fell to the ground during Wednesday's training camp practice in obvious pain.
Coach Matt Nagy told reporters after practice concluded that the injury was a groin strain and that Montgomery would undergo additional tests to determine if, and for how long, he'll be sidelined.
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, those tests have been conducted and the results are in: Montgomery is expected to miss two to four weeks.
#Bears starting RB David Montgomery, who went down in practice yesterday with a groin injury, is expected to be out 2-4 weeks, source said. That gives him a chance of being out on the field for the opener vs. the #Lions.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 27, 2020
Montgomery's recovery timeline puts his status for Week 1's game against the Lions in doubt. The Bears will be in Detroit on Sept. 13, just 17 days from now.
