Packers TY Montgomery is, in fact, a running back

ESPN - [Full Article]

There's a reason the word "unofficial" appears in the upper-right corner of the depth chart the Green Bay Packers' public relations department distributes every week.

Nowhere does it list Ty Montgomery as a running back.

Not only is the former receiver a full-time member of the backfield now, he's likely the Packers' No. 1 running back heading into Sunday's game at Chicago and for the rest of the season.

"Well, Ty Montgomery is a running back," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Monday. "So I don't know where that was lost. I don't know if you're paying attention to the Jason Wahlers' depth chart that he puts together. I apologize because I haven’t looked at it since preseason, but, Ty, he's a running back. I apologize for not making an announcement. He hasn't gone to a receiver meeting in months."

Fantasy Impact:

The story went on to say being a full-time running back doesn't necessarily mean Montgomery will all of a sudden get 15-20 carries a game. However, James Starks' role has clearly diminished. He's carried just six times for a total of 4 yards in the last two games combined and has played just seven snaps in each game. If Christine Michael keeps going the wrong way and misses handoffs like he did on an aborted play against the Seahawks, then his role might not increase, either.
