Chicago Bears CB Charles Tillman said he thinks the team wants him to return in 2014. Tillman does not have the impression the team does not want him back. "No, I don't think that's the case," Tillman said. "I don't think that they don't want me back. Hell, I know they want me back. I think it's a matter of finances and everything working out."
Huddle Up: Tillman soon will turn 33 and is coming off a season in which he played in only half of the team's games, so there have to be some reservations. Still, it sounds like the Bears could bring the veteran back at a price more to their liking.

Chicago Bears CB Charles Tillman (knee) is likely to play in the team's Week 9 game against the Green Bay Packers, according to head coach Marc Trestman.
Huddle Up: Tillman, who has 3 interceptions and a pair of forced fumbles so far this season, is hoping the Week 8 bye was just what he needed to get closer to full health.

Chicago Bears CB Charles Tillman (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 18, and is questionable.
Huddle Up: Tillman, who sat out Wednesday's practice, was a limited participant the past 2 days and likely should be able to give it a go in D.C. Double check The Huddle's Game-Day Inactives, Injuries and Weather Report on Sunday morning to make sure.

Chicago Bears CB Charles Tillman (knee) is expected to play in Week 7 against the Washington Redskins despite sitting out practice Wednesday, Oct. 16, according to head coach Marc Trestman. 'He's expected to play,' Trestman said. 'We're going to ease him in this week and give him a little more (Thursday) and Friday, but he's feeling good and we expect him to play.'
Huddle Up: This isn't the end of the world for Pierre Garcon owners. Tillman hasn't exactly been shutting down receivers this season and the Bears' defense overall isn't the same dominant unit it has been in year's past. The bigger problem for Garcon is the inconsistent play of his quarterback, Robert Griffin. Still, Chicago's defense is much better with Tillman than without him.

Chicago Bears LB James Anderson (back) and CB Charles Tillman did not participate in practice Monday, Oct. 14. The team is optimistic that Tillman can play Week 7 after having to sit out Week 6.

Chicago Bears CB Charles Tillman (knee) is inactive for the team's Week 6 game against the New York Giants Thursday, Oct. 10. CB Zackary Bowman will replace Tillman and start opposite CB Tim Jennings. Tillman had appeared in 55 straight games, including the playoffs, but he's expected to return in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Eli Manning and the 0-5 Giants are in desperate need of some breaks, and not having to face the Bears' top cover man certainly counts in this category. See if Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks and Rueben Randle, et al can take advantage.

Chicago Bears CB Charles Tillman will not be matched up against Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson for the entire game in Week 4. 'As of now I'm just on the right side,' Tillman said.
Huddle Up: Whatever the Bears have been doing in the secondary hasn't worked particularly well, as evidenced by A.J. Green's 9-162-2 and Antonio Brown's 9-196-2. So they may want to shake it up for the upcoming meeting with Megatron.
