The Bears' Charles Tillman may miss the Sunday Night contest against the Texans

Don McPeak-US PRESSWIRE

I'm sure NBC would like to get as much mileage out of hyping a game between two possible Defensive Player Of The Year candidates, but that may not happen. J.J. Swat vs The Peanut Punch could be in Jeopardy.

Yesterday on Chicago radio station WSCR am 670, Chicago Bears corner back Charles Tillman told host Laurence Holmes that he may miss the Sunday Night game against the 7-1 Houston Texans. Tillman and his wife are expecting their 4th child, another daughter, any day now.

"The wife is due any day, so hopefully this baby can stay in until after the game on Sunday," Tillman said. "I hope she stays in - I'm having another girl. Monday, for sure, but if she comes Sunday, I think I'm going to have to be at the hospital Sunday. So, I hope she stays in until after Sunday."

Tillman, the Bears tallest corner, would be needed to match up with big Texans wide outs Andre Johnson and Kevin Walter, both 6'3". But I'm sure everyone understands that family comes first.

If he were to miss the game, expect Kelvin Hayden to get the cornerback reps, and D.J. Moore to remain at nickleback for Chicago.

Bears fans what would this mean to your confidence that the Bears can knock off Houston?
