GREEN BAY, Wis. The Green Bay Packers will be without defensive line coach Jerry Montgomery for Monday night’s game against the Detroit Lions due to COVID-19 protocols.
Montgomery has not been with the team for any of their drills this week.
Defensive quality control coach Wendel Davis, within linebackers coach Kirk Olivadotti and external linebackers coach Mike Smith help with the defense, the team announced on Saturday.
The NFL does not believe Montgomery’s case is related to any close contact with the Saints, who have had several cases since Sunday’s game against Green Bay.
“They emailed us and told us who these people could potentially be,” Packers coach Matt LaFleur said earlier this week. “There were no close high-risk contacts based on what the league told us.”
It’s the first time this season that the Packers have been without any of their coaches, all of whom have been vaccinated.
