• Tillman (groin) held out of practice

    Summary of 12 articles · Updated Sep 29, 2013
    This was before all that, just two games into both the season and Tillman’s career. Asked on Wednesday whether there was any chance he’d miss, Tillman said, “No, I’ll be there.” Johnson is great, but Tillman has been great when covering Johnson. Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman missed practice for the second-consecutive day Thursday as he works through a strained groin and a sore right knee. However, the great unknown is how Tillman’s body will hold up over the course of a game defending Detroit Lions All-Pro wide receiver Calvin Johnson , a test Tillman has passed with flying colors in the past. With Tillman banged up, how long he’ll be able to play comes into the equation, and more importantly, whether he can be effective enough to slow down Johnson. With the Bears leading Minnesota 13-10 in the final two minutes, Daunte Culpepper challenged the rookie cornerback on a jump ball in the end zone to the best receiver on earth. Tillman won both the ball and the game and started a career that’s been mostly excellent, somehow defined by forcing fumbles, and ultimately undervalued. In addition, cornerback Sherrick McManis was held out for the second-straight workout because of a quadriceps injury.
