Packers put Ty Montgomery on injured reserve list

Packers put Ty Montgomery on injured reserve list

The Packers ended a two-game losing streak to move to 6-6 on the season, and Brett Hundley improved to 2-4 as a starter in Rodgers' absence.

Yes, Rodgers was designated for return off injured reserve and practiced Saturday, but at this rate the Packers might have nothing to play for by the time Rodgers could play on December 17 at Carolina - the first game for which he's eligible, per National Football League injured reserve rules.

Aaron Jones' 20-yard touchdown run on his only carry, with 5:59 left in overtime, gave the Green Bay Packers a 26-20 win Sunday over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs never saw the ball in the extra period.

Originally a wide receiver before he was converted by the Packers into a running back, Montgomery finishes his 2017-18 season with 273 rushing yards and three rushing scores.

Jamaal Williams did most of the heavy lifting for the Packers, running for 113 yards on 21 carries.

The Packers probably needed more games like this from their special teams and defense after Rodgers broke his collarbone in Week 6.

He spent three weeks on the sideline watching veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick lead the team to two wins by taking few risks. It was the second-most sacks in Green Bay's history as the Packers took advantage of the Bucs' decimated offensive line. Outside linebacker Clay Matthews (groin) and defensive tackle Kenny Clark (ankle) both practiced on Wednesday, as well.

The Packers also got a blocked punt, with Kyler Fackrell getting to Bucs punter Bryan Anger. In all, Winston didn't look very good, coupling bad decision-making with another turnover, a fumble that was returned for a touchdown. It led to a five-play, 45-yard drive capped by a 1-yard touchdown run from Williams. Justin Evans made the pick.

Jameis Winston completed 21-of-32 passes for 270 yards and two touchdowns in the Bucs' Week 13 loss to the Packers.

Peyton Barber had 102 yards for 23 carries.
