Bears running back David Montgomery was limited in practice Friday for the second straight day and is listed as questionable for Sunday's road game against the Vikings.

The 2019 third-round pick from Iowa State missed last weekend's loss to the Giants after injuring his ankle a week earlier in a win over the Texans.

"He's looked good," said coach Matt Eberflus. "It's positive. It's real positive and he's looked good. He's moving around well. He's got a good spirit about him. He's got brightness in his eyes and he's excited about getting going."

Montgomery told reporters Thursday that he'll be a game-time decision Sunday. The fourth-year pro has rushed for 159 yards on 35 carries. That includes a 122-yard outing on 15 attempts in a Week 2 loss to the Packers. 

Bears cornerback Jaylon Johnson (quad) returned to practice on a limited basis Friday after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday. Listed as doubtful, the 2020 second-round pick is expected to miss his third straight game since injuring his quad in practice.  

The only other Bears player with an injury designation for Sunday's contest is safety Dane Cruikshank (hamstring). Like Johnson, Cruikshank is doubtful after returning to practice on a limited basis Friday.
