GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — In dealing Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Ty Montgomery, the Green Bay Packers traded away two players who spoke in varying degrees in recent weeks about their respective futures with the team.
What happens on the field always comes first, general manager Brian Gutekunst said Wednesday, though other factors aren't ignored either.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Less than 24 hours after being traded to the Baltimore Ravens, Ty Montgomery was having a hard time familiarizing himself with his new surroundings.
"I've never spent any time in Maryland before. We are in Maryland, right?" Montgomery said. "This whole part of the country kind of throws me for a loop. I don't know if I'm in Virginia or what."
This has been one of the more active NFL trade deadlines for fantasy purposes.
Fans of Houston, Philadelphia, and Baltimore are assuredly excited by their new players, picking up Demaryius Thomas, Golden Tate and Ty Montgomery. However, it's the teams that traded those players that will likely provide the most opportunity for fantasy value.
MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Green Bay Packers have traded running back and kick returner Ty Montgomery to the Baltimore Ravens.
Baltimore was sending a seventh-round draft pick to Green Bay in what was a busy trade deadline day for Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst.
Green Bay also traded starting safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to the Washington Redskins for a 2019 fourth-round draft pick. Clinton-Dix, who can become a free agent after this season, was drafted out of Alabama in the first round in 2014.
Ty Montgomery gets the Bonehead Award for Week 8 for keeping Aaron Rodgers on the sideline.
Todd Gurley gets the Egghead Award for Week 8 for keeping Aaron Rodgers on the sideline.
Ensuring Green Bay's clutch quarterback stayed off the field after Greg Zuerlein hit a 34-yard field goal with 2:05 left allowed the Los Angeles Rams to remain the league's only unbeaten team with a 29-27 win Sunday.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Ty Montgomery left Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Sunday after his crucial fumble during a kickoff return without talking to reporters. He had plenty to say on Monday.
The Green Bay Packers running back and kick returner talked more about his uncertain role and anonymous criticism from a teammate than about costing his team a chance to beat the Rams.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ramik Wilson was not the most likely candidate on the Los Angeles Rams' superstar-laden roster to make the decisive play late in the fourth quarter of a tight game with Green Bay.
Yet there went the backup linebacker, flying downfield on kickoff coverage and clobbering Ty Montgomery to force a fumble that he recovered himself.
"It was one of the biggest collisions I've been in," Wilson said. "So we both felt it, and he fumbled."
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Greg Zuerlein hit a 34-yard field goal with 2:05 left and Ramik Wilson forced and recovered Ty Montgomery's fumble on the ensuing kickoff return, allowing the Los Angeles Rams to remain unbeaten without a late defensive stand in a 29-27 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
Jared Goff passed for 295 yards and three touchdowns while the Rams (8-0) were sternly tested by the Packers (3-3-1) and Aaron Rodgers, who threw for 286 yards.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ty Montgomery's fourth-quarter fumble on a kickoff return was only the final big blow to the Green Bay Packers' hopes of knocking off the unbeaten Los Angeles Rams.
Montgomery's mistake was far from the only error Sunday that left Green Bay's half of the rowdy Coliseum crowd going home unhappy despite an occasionally inspired effort by their team.
The Latest on Week 8 in the NFL on Sunday (all times EDT):
Todd Gurley and the Los Angeles Rams are halfway to 16-0 after a comeback victory over the Green Bay Packers.
The Rams remained unbeaten by overcoming their largest deficit of the season to beat Aaron Rodgers and Co. 29-27 despite trailing by 10 points after the first quarter.
And they did it despite a pro-Packers crowd that loudly supported the visiting team at the Coliseum.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Aaron Rodgers can't lead a game-winning drive if he never gets the ball.
That was the whole idea when Los Angeles' Ramik Wilson forced a fumble from Green Bay's Ty Montgomery on a late kickoff return. That was also Todd Gurley's thought moments later when he stopped running with a clear path to the end zone, keeping Rodgers stuck on the sideline in the unbeaten Rams' eighth victory.
This is one week to stick with the top running backs in daily fantasy football.
While there are a few high-end receivers in play, the way to approach this Week 7 slate is to go for the players with the absurdly high floors due to their talent and respective matchups.
These are the top backs to target and the cheap complements who make them work on daily rosters:
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — A groin injury leaves Bills safety Micah Hyde's status uncertain for Buffalo's game against Tennessee this weekend.
Coach Sean McDermott listed Hyde as week to week on Monday, a day after the starter was hurt in a 22-0 loss at Green Bay. He was hurt during Ty Montgomery's 43-yard catch in the first quarter.
The injury further depletes the team's depth at the position. Buffalo has just two backup safeties on the roster: 10-year journeyman Rafael Bush and rookie Siran Neal.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers are keeping more quarterbacks than running backs on their season-opening roster.
Undrafted free agent Tim Boyle made the roster as the third quarterback behind starter Aaron Rodgers and backup DeShone Kizer. Green Bay's initial 53-man roster lists just Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery at running back.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Injuries and unexpected developments have left the Green Bay Packers thin at running back with just two camp practices and two games left in the preseason.
Only Ty Montgomery, who has overcome injury issues in the past, and little-known halfback Joel Bouagnon have made it through camp unscathed.
The Packers were forced to sign Bronson Hill and LeShun Daniels over the weekend to replenish depth.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Green Bay will be without linebacker Clay Matthews when the Packers try to pull an upset in Pittsburgh against the Steelers.
The Packers made Matthews inactive for their prime-time meeting with the AFC North-leading Steelers. Matthews is dealing with a groin injury. Matthews suffered the injury in the first half of last week's loss to Baltimore.
The prime topic of conversation around fantasy football this week is clear: How does the broken collarbone injury for Aaron Rodgers affect the Packers and fantasy football for the rest of this season?
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Packers safety Morgan Burnett will miss Sunday's game against Minnesota with a hamstring injury, and Green Bay might be down another starter in the secondary in cornerback Kevin King.
Burnett was ruled out on Friday, and the Packers listed King as doubtful. The rookie cornerback, who is in the concussion protocol, hasn't practiced yet this week.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Injured Green Bay Packers running back Ty Montgomery has a chance to play Sunday at Minnesota.
Montgomery was listed as full participant for a second straight day Thursday while wearing a flak jacket to protect broken ribs sustained against Chicago on Sept. 28. The practice Thursday was the lone padded workout of the week and a key in determining his availability.
Green Bay receiver Davante Adams is active against Dallas on Sunday, 10 days after he was taken off the field on a stretcher following a helmet-to-helmet hit that led to a suspension for Chicago linebacker Danny Trevathan.
Packers running back is Ty Montgomery inactive after sustaining broken ribs in the win over the Bears. Left tackle David Bakhtiari (hamstring) is out against the Cowboys, but right tackle Bryan Bulaga (ankle) is active.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay Packers running back Ty Montgomery is listed as doubtful to play against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday because of broken ribs.
Montgomery got hurt in last week's win over the Chicago Bears. He appeared to be wearing a flak jacket under his jersey while practicing on a limited basis this week.
Backup running back Jamaal Williams, who hurt his knee in the Bears game, was dropped from the injury report on Friday and should be available against Dallas.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Packers running back Ty Montgomery will prepare this week as if he will play on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.
His broken ribs might keep him out, though.
On the first play of the Packers' 35-14 victory over the Chicago Bears on Thursday night, Montgomery gained 5 yards before being tackled by linebacker Danny Trevathan. As Montgomery and Trevathan hit the turf, defensive lineman Akiem Hicks fell on Trevathan's knee.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Two more key players hurt. A starting cornerback benched. The Green Bay Packers even had to weather a lightning storm delay.
But they just keep finding ways to win.
Aaron Rodgers threw four short touchdown passes, and the injury-riddled Packers converted three of Bears quarterback Mike Glennon's four turnovers into scores in an eventful 35-14 victory over mistake-prone Chicago on Thursday night.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Packers receiver Davante Adams was taken off the field on a stretcher with about 4 minutes left in the third quarter against the Chicago Bears on Thursday night after getting hit in the head during a tackle by Danny Trevathan.
The game was delayed for about 5 minutes while medical personnel tended to Adams. He gave a thumbs-up signal as he was wheeled off the field.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Ty Montgomery's transition to running back appears to be going well.
Yes, the converted receiver was listed as the starting tailback on the Green Bay Packers' depth chart to open the season. He spent the offseason preparing as a running back.
Montgomery passed his first test in his first season opener as a full-timer in the backfield.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The impressive season-opening victory over Seattle for the Green Bay Packers could have bigger implications in a few months when the NFC powers are jostling for playoff seeding.
They wore down the Seahawks in a style befitting grind-it-out, postseason football.
GREEN BAY, Wisconsin (AP) — Green Bay defensive lineman Mike Daniels' strip sack of Russell Wilson deep in Seattle territory in the third quarter set up Ty Montgomery's 6-yard touchdown run on the next play to spark the Packers' 17-9 win on Sunday.
Aaron Rodgers was 28 of 42 for 311 yards and added a 32-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson to make it an eight-point game late in the third quarter.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Mike Daniels can be a man of few words. The defensive lineman's play on the football field speaks volumes as to how important he has become to the Green Bay Packers.
Daniels' strip-sack of Russell Wilson deep in Seattle territory in the third quarter set up Ty Montgomery's 6-yard touchdown run on the next play to spark the Packers' 17-9 win on Sunday over the Seahawks.
GREEN BAY, Wisconsin (AP) — A marquee season opener between two NFC heavyweights turned into a defensive slugfest.
The Green Bay Packers — not the menacing Seattle Seahawks — landed the momentum-swinging punch.
