    Description: There's a possibility Chicago cornerback Charles Tillman could miss Sunday's game against Houston. His wife is expecting a child any day now.

    Hot11/5/2012 10:12:00 PM
    Description: Chicago Bears CB Charles Tillman, like the rest of his teammates on the defensive side of the ball, is having an outstanding season. Tillman has picked off two balls, defensed six passes, scored two touchdowns and recorded 43 total tackles. Most impressively, however, is his seven fumbles forced.
    Insight: Tillman forced a team-record four fumbles Sunday against the Titans. He's a strong candidate for Defensive Player of the Year, though he'll have to contend with several players on his own team for the award.

    Description: The Chicago Tribune reports Tillman (lung/ribs) is expected to be fully cleared for offseason activity in another week or so.

    12/31/2009 12:36:00 AM
    Description: Brad Biggs of the Chicago Sun Times reports Tillman (ribs/lung) has been placed on IR ending his 2009 season.

    12/29/2009 4:02:00 PM
    Description: Updating a previous item, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Sun Times, Tillman (ribs/lung) suffered a lung contusion to go along with the fractured ribs he suffered in Monday night's game against Minnesota.
    Insight: Tillman's absence for Week 17 against Detroit slightly improves Lions' WR Calvin Johnson's matchup, but that's about it for fantasy impact. (SportsBuff.com)

    Description: The Chicago Tribune reports that Tillman (ribs) suffered a rib injury while making a tackle during Monday night's game against Minnesota.

    Description: In an updated of an item from Tuesday, Tillman (left shoulder) suffered a separated shoulder during Week 9 against Arizona.
