WATCH: Every David Montgomery touch from Week 1

Share

Chicago Bears rookie RB David Montgomery made his NFL debut Thursday night against the Green Bay Packers and despite all of the excitement surrounding the third-round pick from Iowa State, his impact on the game was minimal.

The Bears ultimately lost, 10-3, largely because of the playcalling. The running game was never established by Matt Nagy and Montgomery was limited to just six carries for 18 yards. He did add one catch for 27 yards.

Montgomery became the talk of the preseason after bursting onto the scene against the Carolina Panthers. He totaled 46 yards and a touchdown in the summer's first exhibition game, flashing bellcow traits along the way. Montgomery was shelved for the remainder of the Bears' preseason schedule and the theory (or hope?) was he'd be unleashed against Green Bay.

It never happened, but he still gave fans just enough of a glimpse of his exciting potential against the Packers. Take a look:
