Lake Forest, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - The Chicago Bears have termed a pair of defensive starters questionable to play in Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints.
Cornerback Charles Tillman continues to be bothered by injuries to his groin and knee, while defensive tackle Stephen Paea is dealing with a turf toe issue.
Tillman was also considered questionable for last week's 40-32 loss at Detroit, but was able to play. The two-time Pro Bowl selection returned to practice on Friday after sitting out the previous two days.
Paea has not practiced at all this week, though the Chicago Tribune reported Friday that he is expected to be active.
Reserve safety Anthony Walters has been ruled out with a pulled hamstring.
Wide receiver Brandon Marshall (foot), defensive end Julius Peppers (chest), tight end Martellus Bennett (shoulder) and linebacker D.J. Williams (illness) are among those listed as probable for Sunday's tilt.
