A report says that a Green Bay Packers starting running back may not be missing any time at all after what was initially reported as broken ribs.
During the Packers-Bears game Thursday night, Ty Montgomery suffered an injury which NFL.com's Ian Rapoport said was broken ribs, an injury which likely would have meant an extended absence.

But ESPN's Adam Schefter says the injury is not as bad as thought, and Montgomery could play Sunday against Dallas. In the meantime, Montgomery is being considered day-to-day.

Montgomery looked sharp in limited action against the Bears Thursday night, racking up 28 yards on just 5 carries for a whopping 5.6 yard per carry average.
