The Packers under MM will rarely be a 25 to 30 carries a game offense or over 20 carries for that matter. .
Lacy in his most productive year had 15 or fewer carries in 11 games.
I also think some of those carries will be pass plays instead to Montgomery out of the back field.
Wear and tear will be kept to a minimum more than not, not because Montgomery can or can't handle it, but because that is simply the nature of the Packer offensive system.
And much like the Lacy / Starks combo we will see that again with a RB to be named shortly.
