According to Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune, both David Montgomery and Mitchell Trubisky were back at practice on Monday, which is an encouraging sign that both players may be ready to play in Sunday’s game at Green Bay.
David Montgomery (concussion) was back on the field with the Bears. But Akiem Hicks (hamstring) was not spotted.

Montgomery was placed in the NFL’s concussion protocol after sustaining a blow to the head late in the game against the Tennessee Titans. His return could be a big boost for the Bears, who need all the help they can get pass-blocking. Montgomery’s 77.7 grade, as calculated by Pro Football Focus ($), is actually higher than any of the Bears’ offensive linemen.
As for Trubisky, his healthy return could possibly mean that he starts on Sunday in place of Nick Foles, who was carted off at the end of the Bears’ most recent game against the Vikings. Matt Nagy reported that Foles’ injury wasn’t serious, but he did not practice on Monday, leaving open the possibility that he could be out for Sunday’s game against the Packers.
