Ty Montgomery, WR (NE)

In backfield mix Thursday

With Alvin Kamara (knee) and Tony Jones (coach's decision) inactive Thursday night against the Cowboys, Montgomery figures to see some backfield touches behind Mark Ingram in the contest, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

With both Kamara and Ingram (knee) out of the mix in last Thursday's game against the Bills, Montgomery logged six carries for 14 yards (while Jones had 16 carries) in addition to five catches on seven targets for 31 yards. This time around, Ingram is back in action and should lead the way, with Montgomery mixing in as a change-of-pace option, a context that could give him a degree of PPR utility Week 13.
