LAKE FOREST, IL – The Chicago Bears have placed CB Charles Tillman on injured reserve/designated to return due to a triceps’ injury. Players placed on injured reserve/designated to return are eligible to return to practice in six weeks and eligible to return to game action in eight weeks. That means Tillman will miss the rest of the regular season. 

Tillman has started all eight contests in which he has played this season, recording three interceptions and three fumble recoveries. During his NFL career, Tillman has started 150-of-154 games played, ranking third in franchise history in interceptions (36), first in interception return yards (675), interception return touchdowns (eight) and defensive return touchdowns (nine). His 42 forced fumbles lead the NFL since 2003, while his 36 interceptions are tied for fifth. He is the only player in the NFL since 2003 to record 40 forced fumbles and 30 interceptions.
