Bears place Tillman on IR with torn right triceps

Share Tweet Email

CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Bears say cornerback Charles Tillman will miss the remainder of the season after tearing his right triceps.

The Bears placed the two-time Pro Bowl player on injured reserve Monday. Tillman came up clutching his arm in pain in the third quarter of Sunday’s win at San Francisco after he got tangled with the 49ers’ Michael Crabtree on a run along the sideline by Colin Kaepernik.

He was seen weeping on the sideline.

Tillman suffered a similar injury against Detroit last November. The Bears left open the possibility of a comeback by placing him on IR with a designation to return.

He wound up missing the remainder of the season, instead.
