Bears activate Danny Trevathan; send David Montgomery to IR

The Chicago Bears activated linebacker Danny Trevathan off injured reserve ahead of Sunday’s clash with the host Las Vegas Raiders.

Also Saturday, the Bears placed running back David Montgomery (knee sprain) on IR, downgraded defensive tackle Akiem Hicks (groin) to out and elevated running back Ryan Nall from the practice squad to the active roster.

Trevathan, 31, missed the first four games with a knee injury. He returned to practice Sept. 29.

Trevathan has notched 10 sacks, eight interceptions and seven forced fumbles in 112 career games (93 starts) with the Denver Broncos (2012-15) and Bears.

Montgomery exited Sunday’s 24-14 victory against the Detroit Lions in the fourth quarter. He rushed for 106 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries.

Montgomery, 24, leads the Bears with 309 rushing yards and three scores. He also has six catches for 49 yards.

Hicks, 31, was hurt on the first play from scrimmage against the Lions. The 10th-year veteran has 10 tackles and four QB hits in four starts this season.

Nall, 25, has not played this season. He tallied 75 yards from scrimmage and one touchdown in 24 appearances for Chicago from 2019-20.

Bears RB David Montgomery injures left knee

Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery exited Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions in the fourth quarter due to a left knee injury.

Bears coach Matt Nagy said after the 24-14 victory that the team didn’t yet know the seriousness.

Meanwhile, nfl.com reported that Montgomery will undergo an MRI exam on Monday with the team feeling the injury may only be a hyperextended knee.

Montgomery rushed for 106 yards and two touchdown on 23 carries against the Lions.

He was injured with just over 11 minutes remaining and grabbed his knee in obvious pain.

“As soon as he got tackled and I saw his facial expression and heard him, I was waving my hand for the trainers to come over as fast as they can,” Bears receiver Darnell Moody said.

The 100-yard outing was Montgomery’s second of the season. He leads the Bears with 309 rushing yards and three touchdowns.

The 24-year-old Montgomery is in his third NFL season. He rushed for 889 yards as a rookie in 2019 and 1,070 last season.
