Stanford’s Ty Montgomery could miss USC game

Stanford’s Ty Montgomery is one of the nation’s top wide receivers, but he may not be ready to play by the start of the season.

Montgomery already missed the entirety of spring practice after he underwent surgeries on his arm and knee. Stanford head coach David Shaw then told Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News during Pac-12 media days that Montgomery is questionable for the season-opener against UC-Davis and “It will be close for USC.”

Montgomery led Stanford with 958 receiving yards last season. He was also named a Walter Camp All-American as a returner after heĀ  averaged 30.3 yards per kick return.

Standford’s staff plans to bring Montgomery along slowly, and the coaches hope he will be ready by the end of the summer.

“Hopefully, by the end of training camp, he’ll be able to do more contact stuff,” Shaw added.

If Montgomery misses a game or two, Stanford QB Kevin Hogan will have to rely heavily on senior WR Devon Cajuste. Cajuste finished second on the team last season with 642 receiving yards. Sophomore Francis Owusu would be first in line to fill in for Montgomery until his return.

And Stanford can always rely heavily on its overwhelming running attack if the passing game sputters.

    Their running attack didn’t look so hot against MI State. So predictable…

    Is Barry Sanders Jr. Much of a player?
