Ty Montgomery says he’s not worried about sickle cell trait

The symptoms that kept Ty Montgomery out of the Green Bay Packers’ loss at Atlanta on Sunday are related to sickle cell trait — a condition the receiver said he was diagnosed with previously.

However, he said last week was the first time he experienced any issues. Sources told ESPN on Sunday that Montgomery had blood in his urine and the Packers kept him out for precautionary reasons.

Montgomery said he and his doctors believe this was related to sickle cell trait, not a hit he sustained during a game, and don’t think it’s career-threatening. In fact, Montgomery hasn’t ruled out playing Sunday against the Colts at Lambeau Field.
