Bears' David Montgomery questionable to return with neck injury

Just one series after New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley was carted off the field with an apparent knee injury, Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery exited the game with a neck injury. 

Mongomery jumped over a pile and came down hard on his head. He remained down before walking off the field without assistance. The Bears have ruled him as questionable to return. 

Montgomery, the Bears' top running back, likely will be replaced by Tarik Cohen, who recently agreed to a three-year, $17.25 million extension with Chicago.

Mongomery had five carries for 23 yards with one reception for 28 yards and a touchdown before exiting the game. 

The 23-year-old had a solid season for the Bears in 2019, rushing for 889 yards and six touchdowns while adding 185 yards and one touchdown receiving. Losing him for any amount of time could be costly for Chicago. 

Montgomery only is the latest player who suffered an injury on Sunday. Drew Lock, Nick Bosa, Parris Campbell, Cam Akers and Anthony Barr also suffered injuries and left the games they were competing in.
