Update: According to Ian Rapoport, the Bears believe Montgomery suffered a hyperextended knee that did not lead to a major injury. Montgomery is slated to have an MRI Monday to determine the exact extent of the damage

Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery suffered a knee injury at the start of the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions. He will miss the rest of the game.

Montgomery was having a solid day before going down, taking 23 carries for 106 yards and two touchdowns and helped the Bears jump out to a 24-14 lead early in the fourth quarter. Backup Damien Williams has five carries for 27 yards and a touchdown on the afternoon as well.

This marked the second 100-yard performance for Monty this season, as he ran for 108 on 6.8 yards per carry and a touchdown in their Week 1 loss against the Los Angeles Rams. His production dipped for the next two weeks as the Bears’ offense sputtered, but he certainly found a rhythm today.

With the Bears holding a two-score lead late in the fourth, it makes sense for the Bears to shut him down for the rest of the day.
