The Packers also lost linebacker Joe Thomas due to an ankle injury.

It's approaching a full 16 regular season games since circumstances forced the Green Bay Packers to try wide receiver Ty Montgomery at running back. This meant the Packers were down to third-string running back Aaron Jones, who scored his first National Football League touchdown.

Since making the switch from wide receiver to running back in December of past year, Montgomery proved himself as a viable weapon in the Packers' offense. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Ty Montgomery suffered broken ribs against the Bears.

Green Bay will travel to take on the Dallas Cowboys next Sunday, the place where it defeated the NFC East Champions in the playoffs last season.

The Packers also got good news on rookie backup Jamaal Williams, who isn't expected to miss anything more than one game with a knee injury.

Ryanair extends flight cancellations to early 2018
The Commission for Aviation Regulation says it's satisfied with Ryanair's response and will continue to monitor the situation. The CAA said that the airline will either have to re-route or refund all customers.

In a relief effort during Thursday night's blowout win over the Chicago Bears, Jones rushed for 49 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries.

Montgomery ran the ball five times in seven plays to start but left the game holding his chest and did not return.

Keep an eye on him when waivers hit this week. Williams carried four times for 11 yards and did not look as explosive as Jones, nor did he create as much for himself.

Jones is a safety valve but at least worth considering with Green Bay's backfield dealing with so many health concerns.
