Twenty-five things to know about Week 5 injury report

Green Bay Packers running back Ty Montgomery is doubtful to play against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday after suffering broken ribs last week.

Montgomery, who suffered the injury during the Packers' Week 4 victory over the Chicago Bears, expressed hope he would play against the Cowboys. He said he was considering wearing a flak jacket and would be willing to play through pain, but it appears the Packers will take a cautious approach with their workhorse running back.

Montgomery was limited in practice all week for the Packers.

Wide receiver Davante Adams is questionable to play after suffering a concussion on a hit by Danny Trevathan that led to the Bears linebacker being suspended for a game.

Packers offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga (ankle), defensive tackle Mike Daniels (hip) and cornerbacks Davon House (quad) andQuinten Rollins* *(ankle) are all questionable.
