The Chicago Bears received a significant blow to their defense when starting cornerback Charles Tillman went down with torn triceps against the San Francisco 49ers.
This made Sunday night bittersweet for the Bears since they upset the 49ers, 28-20. The Bears had an impressive showing on defense as they came away with four turnovers and shut down the 49ers in the second half.
Tillman’s injury will be season-ending, and the team will place him on injured reserve.
Rookie cornerback Kyle Fuller is expected to take over as the starter across from Tim Jennings, and he stepped up big on Sunday night with two interceptions.
Here is a tweet from ESPN NFL insider Adam Caplan confirming Tillman’s season-ending injury.
