Campbell told the media this week that Montgomery is day to day with a thigh injury. The Lions expect rookie Jahmyr Gibbs to pick up some of the slack while Montgomery recovers. However, Gibbs is undersized to be used as a full-time running back for the Lions.
The Detroit Lions sign Devine Ozigbo
According to Aaron Wilson with KPRC, the Lions added depth at running back this week by signing Devine Ozigbo to the practice squad Wednesday.
The Lions signed Ozigbo during training camp this year but cut him towards the end of August. He’s getting another chance in Detroit after Montgomery’s injury.
