Morning Buzz: Packers get back to work
Welcome to your Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers from around the web and here at PackersNews.com. Grab a strong cup of coffee, or brew some tea, and get caught up on everything you need to know about the Packers.
We’ll start with Ty Montgomery telling our Clubhouse Live audience that he is indeed dealing with multiple broken ribs.
From Brett Christopherson:
Q: You reportedly sustained broken ribs during Thursday's victory over the Bears, but later reports stated the injury wasn't as serious and you're preparing to play against the Cowboys on Sunday. What can you say about the injury? How are you feeling? And will we see you on the field against Dallas?
Montgomery: I'm going to do my best to try to be out there. But of course, I have to be wary of risking something more serious. I don't want to puncture any internal organs. We all know how serious that can be. It's also kind of frustrating when an injury happens - obviously it's in the public eye and everybody wants to know what's going on. But I wish I could have some privacy on my own injuries sometimes. And I wish the people that are reporting things from anonymous sources could be held accountable for the things that they report.
It is what it is. But I will say that (the ribs) are broken. Multiple. And I'll be fine. I'm feeling a lot better than I felt on Thursday. I can laugh now, I can sleep now. My movement's fine. It's just a matter of, is it going to be safe enough for me to be out there and not risk internal injury? That's the conversation I'm trying to have now.
