Draft Scout Ty Montgomery News
07/31/14 - Stanford receiver and All-America kick returner Ty Montgomery said he's in the final stages of his rehabilitation from right shoulder surgery and hopes to play in the opener against UC Davis on Aug. 30. Montgomery said Wednesday he played through the shoulder injury part of last season before having surgery in February. He also hurt a knee in the Cardinal's loss to Michigan State in the Rose Bowl, an injury he said was "minor." Montgomery said he's already lifting weights, running routes and catching passes. He said he's just waiting for team doctors to clear him for contact drills. "Whenever they tell me I can play, I'm ready to play," Montgomery said.
Montgomery's self-diagnosis at Bay Area College Football Media Day at the 49ers' new stadium sounded more optimistic than what Cardinal coach David Shaw said last week. Shaw said at Pac-12 media days in Los Angeles that Montgomery would probably sit out the season opener and is questionable for Stanford's home game against Southern California on Sept. 6. Shaw stuck by that statement Wednesday, but he also said Montgomery might not miss any games. He said team doctors will make the decision on when Montgomery plays. "I never follow the direction of the player. I always follow the direction of the doctors," Shaw said. "We'll see. Ty's ahead of schedule. He's ahead of schedule. He's a phenomenal athlete. And if he's ready to go Game 1 and the doctors say, 'You know what, he's at limited risk for re-injury, let's let him go play,' I'm all for it. - AP Sports
07/30/14 - 2014 PRESEASON BILETNIKOFF AWARD WATCH LIST: Ty Montgomery, Stanford University, Sr.,...Montgomery has previously been named to watch lists for the Maxwell Award (player of the year) and the Hornung Award (most versatile). Montgomery is already well-versed in major awards. Following an electrifying 2013 season, he was a consensus All-America selection and received the Johnny “The Jet” Rodgers Award as the national return specialist of the year.
Earlier this summer Montgomery was named as Phil Steele’s preseason all-purpose player of the year as well as an all-conference first teamer at wide receiver. He also garnered preseason All-America honors at specialist by Athlon and at kick returner by the Sporting News. A political science major at Stanford, Montgomery finished second nationally in kickoff return average (30.3) in 2013. Montgomery was the only player on a BCS conference team with two kickoff returns for a touchdown. He finished ninth nationally in all-purpose yards (157.7/game) in 2013, with 2,208 all-purpose yards. The team’s leading pass catcher in 13 of its 14 games of 2013, Montgomery caught 61 passes for 958 yards (15.7 yards per reception) with 10 touchdowns. - Stanford football
07/30/14 - Stanford WR Ty Montgomery (arm) questionable for season opener...Stanford could be without Ty Montgomery, one of its most dynamic playmakers, when the Cardinal take the field against UC Davis on Aug. 30. The senior wide receiver missed all of spring practice after surgeries on his knee and arm. Stanford coach David Shaw said Thursday that Montgomery will be limited when the team starts camp on Aug. 4 and laid out a potential timeline for his return. "Hopefully, by the end of training camp, he'll be able to do more contact stuff," Shaw said via Jon Wilner, of the Mercury News. "He might not play the first game, and it will be close for USC."
Stanford will be heavily favored against UC Davis regardless of Montgomery's status, but his availability could have a huge impact on that Stanford-USC game. Montgomery was an All-American specialist last season, ranking second nationally in kickoff return yards per game. Stanford will want his ability to flip the field or make a big play on offense in order to avoid an early conference loss and get revenge for last season's 20-17 loss in the Coliesum. - Chip Patterson, CBSSports.com
