CHICAGO — Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery scored the Bears' first touchdown of the game on Sunday, putting Chicago up 7-0 on the New York Giants with a 28-yard touchdown reception. Unfortunately, Montgomery left the Week 2 matchup early in the second quarter with a neck injury.

After hurdling a defender and getting tripped up while doing so, Montgomery collided with the Soldier Field grass, resulting in a neck injury. Trainers came onto the field and evaluated Montgomery, who was slow to get up. The second-year running back was subsequently removed from the game and taken into the medical tent on the sideline. Soon afterward, the Bears announced that Montgomery was questionable to return.
