Kyle Fuller has chance to shine, but losing Charles Tillman hurts

The Bears wanted Charles Tillman to mentor Kyle Fuller, but not from the sideline. They wanted Fuller to grow with more snaps, but not like this, with Tillman out for the season after tearing his right biceps Sunday night. So when coach Marc Trestman is asked about the idea of Fuller improving because he’ll be playing more, he hesitates. Throwing rookies in the fire has long-term benefits — especially one who wide receiver Brandon Marshall, prone to...

Peanut Tillman plans to continue career - Charles Tillman (DB) Chicago Bears

Speaking Monday, Bears CB Peanut Tillman (triceps, injured reserve) strongly suggested he plans to continue his career in 2015.

Is end near for Charles Tillman in Chicago?

Charles Tillman said “this isn’t the end of the road for me” in a statement released by the team on Monday after it announced he’d go on the season-ending injured reserve due to a ruptured triceps. The first thought to come to mind was it may not be the end, but in Chicago it’s essentially over. That’s not the way to think regarding a player of Tillman’s ilk. But reality is reality. Tim Jennings signed a four-year extension back in January worth $22.

Charles Tillman vows: ‘This isn’t the end of the road for me’

The shove was no different than the hundreds cornerback Charles Tillman had thrown throughout his 12-year career with the Bears. But his two-armed push of San Francisco 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree will go down as his last play of 2014. Time will tell if it’s his last ever. It’s a fair question after Tillman, who turns 34 in February, was placed on injured reserve Monday after rupturing his right triceps on his seemingly harmless shove of Crabtree at Levi’s...

Chicago Bears re-sign Tony Fiammetta, add David Fales to Practice Squad

The Chicago Bears make roster moves in the wake of Charles Tillman going on IR, re-signing fullback Tony Fiammetta and adding rookie QB David Fales to the practice squad. Just a couple of days after cutting them as part of maximizing roster flexibility ahead of the game epic victory against the San Francisco 49ers, the Chicago Bears brought fullback Tony Fiammetta and sixth-round rookie QB David Fales back to the team. Fiammetta, who had been inactive with a hamstring issue since late in training camp, replaces Charles Tillman on the 53-man roster.  Tillman, of course, has been placed on...

Charles Tillman to IR with torn triceps

News that is not surprising to anyone who watched the game last night and saw the emotional Charles "Peanut" Tillman after talking with team doctors about his injury, Tillman is headed to the injured reserve with a torn triceps. It was the same injury, to the same arm that ended his season last year. Charles Tillman has been a staple of the Chicago Bears for the past 11 seasons. He's played some of his best football in recent years and will go down as the best cornerback in franchise history. Unfortunately, for the second year in a row his season has ended due to a torn right triceps. From...

Charles Tillman injury makes Bears’ big ‘D’ night bittersweet

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Teammates Lance Briggs and Roberto Garza came up to console him. Cameras at Levi’s Stadium caught him with tears coming down his face. One of the faces of the Bears franchise for the past decade was down. And out. Cornerback Charles Tillman was ruled out with a right triceps injury in the second half against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night. It was the same one he tore last season in Week 9 against the Detroit Lions, and it required...
