Packers RB Ty Montgomery says he has multiple broken ribs

Packers RB Ty Montgomery in an interview said he has multiple broken ribs.

"I'm going to do my best to try to be out there. But of course, I have to be wary of risking something more serious. I don't want to puncture any internal organs. We all know how serious that can be. It's also kind of frustrating when an injury happens - obviously it's in the public eye and everybody wants to know what's going on. But I wish I could have some privacy on my own injuries sometimes. And I wish the people that are reporting things from anonymous sources could be held accountable for the things that they report.

"It is what it is. But I will say that (the ribs) are broken. Multiple. And I'll be fine. I'm feeling a lot better than I felt on Thursday. I can laugh now, I can sleep now. My movement's fine. It's just a matter of, is it going to be safe enough for me to be out there and not risk internal injury? That's the conversation I'm trying to have now."

Fantasy Impact: 

The severity of Monty's injury has been all over the place since last Thursday night. There were reports he would play this week against Dallas, but with now multiple broken ribs it perhaps makes it a bit tougher for him to suit up. In another report, EPSN's Rob Demovsky thinks "it might be a stretch" for Montgomery to play this week. With Williams battling a knee injury, Jones could be leading the way out of the backfield at least for Week 5.
