Packers RB Ty Montgomery looks to be part of the plan

Based on how snaps were divided during OTA and minicamp practices it once again became apparent that Ty Montgomery remains a significant part of coach Mike McCarthy’s running-back-by-committee plan.

"I feel really good about the running back group," McCarthy said. "I think Ty’s transition has been pretty special. Not only what he’s done from a position change but you look what he’s done to prepare himself -- you look at his body and the added muscle that he’s put on. Ty and just the other young guys, I think it’s going to be a very, very competitive position."

The story went on to say no one will talk about reps, but early in camp Williams has gotten the bulk of the work with the starters during normal down-and-distance situations while Montgomery has handled the two-minute and no-huddle drives where his receiving skills could come back into play. Jones, who must serve a two-game suspension to the start the season, dropped out after two practices with a hamstring injury. It appears Monty will have more value in PPR formats this season.
