David Montgomery (thigh) returning Thursday night for Lions

Detroit Lions running back David Montgomery (thigh) will play on Thursday night against the Green Bay Packers in Week 4, reports Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

What It Means:

Montgomery is set to return after sitting out last week with a thigh injury. Jahmyr Gibbs will likely have a reduced role in the running game after he had more than twice as many carries last week (17) than in the first two games combined (14). Montgomery had 37 combined rush attempts in Weeks 1 and 2.

numberFire's models project Montgomery ($12,500) for 12.3 FanDuel points on the single-game slate Thursday, with 14.8 carries, 61.8 rushing yards, 1.9 receptions, and 16.8 receiving yards. The Packers' run defense is 27th and their pass defense is 11th through three weeks, based on our opponent-adjusted NEP model.
