Packers Ty Montgomery dealing with 'soft-tissue' injury

There wasn't one moment or one play that caused Ty Montgomery to grab his lower leg in agony, which is why the Green Bay Packers running back tried to play off his injury -- which he would describe in no more detail than calling it a "soft-tissue" problem -- as nothing major.

Montgomery did not practice on Tuesday and his status for Saturday's second preseason game at Washington is in doubt. Montgomery carried three times in last week's preseason opener and fumbled before he gave way to rookie Jamaal Williams.

"It was just something on and off, something I'm dealing with," Montgomery said after practice. "Nothing in particular that happened, nothing major, nothing to worry about."

Fantasy Impact:
