Bears RB David Montgomery suffers concussion

Montgomery suffered the concussion in the fourth quarter of a loss to the Titans on Sunday.

(670 The Score) Bears running back David Montgomery suffered a concussion late in the fourth quarter of his team's 24-17 loss to the Titans on Sunday.

Montgomery entered the concussion protocol, and his status will be determined through those measures, coach Matt Nagy said Monday. Montgomery, 23, has rushed 131 times for 472 yards and one touchdown in nine games this season.

Without Montgomery, the Bears could elevate veteran running back Lamar Miller from their practice squad. A 2018 Pro Bowl selection, Miller missed all of last season with a torn ACL. He was signed by the Bears in late September and stashed on the practice squad.

The Bears (5-4) host the Vikings (3-5) next Monday night.
