Lions' David Montgomery (thigh bruise) gets limited designation for estimated Monday practice

The Detroit Lions listed running back David Montgomery (thigh bruise) as a limited participant in Monday's estimated injury report for Week 4.

What It Means:

The Lions did not practice this afternoon, but were required to submit an estimated injury report ahead of their Thursday Night Football tilt against the Packers in Week 4. Montgomery, who missed Week 3 due to his thigh bruise, appears close to a return -- even if the short week does him no favors. The Lions' running game totaled just 112 yards without him last week and seemed to struggle in short-yardage situations.

Montgomery has stepped right into the "Jamaal Williams" role this season, scoring twice in his first two games as a Detroit Lion. Rookie teammate Jahmyr Gibbs' Week 3 performance likely wasn't enough for the team to reduce Montgomery's expected workload this season.
