Robinson, Montgomery back in action
Wide receiver Koren Robinson and defensive end Michael Montgomery were each placed on the 45-man game day roster for Green Bay’s game against the Chiefs. Robinson played in his first game since Oct. 8, 2006, 10 days before he was suspended for one year as a repeat violator of the league’s substance abuse policy.
Robinson was reinstated to the National Football League by Commissioner Roger Goodell on Oct. 18. The receiver was not active for Green Bay’s Monday night game against Denver, but lingering knee soreness subsided this past week and he was given the green light to suit up on Sunday.
Robinson caught a seven-yard pass from Brett Favre late in the second quarter, setting up Mason Crosby’s 37-yard field goal. Robinson finished the game with three catches for 18 yards.
Montgomery played for the first time this season after he sustained a sprained knee midway through training camp. Montgomery played in a handful of snaps in relief of Aaron Kampman at left end and had one tackle. Montgomery also played on special teams.
Goin’ Gonzo on the secondary
Green Bay’s struggles against opposing tight ends continued Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs’ Tony Gonzalez finished with 10 catches for 109 yards with one touchdown. It was his seventh career game with 10 or more receptions and 21st career 100-yard receiving game.
Gonzalez registered his fourth touchdown catch of the season on a 17-yard reception with 5:18 left in the game. He has 65 career TD receptions, the most by any tight end in NFL history. Gonzalez extended his franchise-record streak of consecutive games with a reception to 107 contests, the second-longest streak compiled by a TE in NFL history.
Safety Nick Collins injured his left knee midway through the third quarter while tackling Chiefs receiver Samie Parker. Collins was taken to the locker room for X-rays.
Collins was replaced by rookie safety Aaron Rouse for the remainder of the game.
Defensive tackle Corey Williams injured his knee in the third quarter and did not return.
Without Williams, the Packers were down to two defensive tackles - Ryan Pickett and Johnny Jolly - though defensive end Cullen Jenkins also plays tackle.
