The Chicago Bears announced Monday that veteran CB Charles Tillman is done for the season due to a triceps tear.
#Bears CB Charles Tillman will miss rest of season after being placed on injured reserve with torn right triceps.

- Adam Schefter confirms the report and adds that this could be a career-ending injury for Tillman.
The Bears used their short-term injured reserve designation on WR Marquess Wilson a few weeks ago.
Tillman suffered a triceps injury during Sunday night’s win over the 49ers. Unfortunately for Tillman, this is the same injury that cost him the final seven games of the 2013 season.
Chicago also lost S Chris Conte to an injury as well, so there is some concern regarding the team’s depth in their secondary. The good news from last night is that first-round pick Kyle Fuller really shined in big moments and he should continue to see plenty of playing time in the coming weeks.
Tillman, 33, signed a one-year, $3.25 million contract that included $750,000 guaranteed with the Bears back in March. He has a base salary of $2.25 million for the upcoming season.
We’ll have more details as the news is available.
