Report: Packers RB Ty Montgomery confirms broken ribs

A Packers running back confirms initial reports that he has broken ribs.

Ty Montgomery told PackersNews.com Monday night that he has more than one broken rib, but that his condition is improved.

"I'll be fine. I'm feeling a lot better than I felt on Thursday. I can laugh now, I can sleep now. My movement's fine. It's just a matter of, is it going to be safe enough for me to be out there and not risk internal injury? That's the conversation I'm trying to have now."

When asked about whether he would be available for the Packers-Cowboys game, he did not confirm either way.

"I'm going to do my best to try to be out there. But of course, I have to be wary of risking something more serious. I don't want to puncture any internal organs. We all know how serious that can be," said Montgomery. He then called out reporters such as NFL.com's Ian Rapoport who initially reported Montgomery's ribs being broken during Thursday's win over Chicago.

"It's also kind of frustrating when an injury happens - obviously it's in the public eye and everybody wants to know what's going on. But I wish I could have some privacy on my own injuries sometimes. And I wish the people that are reporting things from anonymous sources could be held accountable for the things that they report.
