Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery did not practice Wednesday due to knee and ankle injuries.

Montgomery got hurt in the first quarter of Sunday's 23-20 win against the Houston Texans and did not return.

Khalil Herbert replaced Montgomery and rushed for 157 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries.

Montgomery, 25, has rushed for 159 yards in three games and has five catches for 38 yards with no scores.

Cornerback Jaylon Johnson also missed Wednesday's practice with a quadriceps injury. He sustained the injury in practice last week and did not play against Houston.

Defensive back Dane Cruikshank and linebacker Matt Adams did not practice due to hamstring injuries. Tight end Ryan Griffin (Achilles), wide receiver Velus Jones Jr. (hamstring) and linebacker Roquan Smith (quad) were limited participants at Wednesday's session.

The Bears (2-1) visit the New York Giants (2-1) on Sunday afternoon.
