Chicago Bears Injury Update: Charles Tillman will not return this season

Rob Grabowski-USA TODAY Sports

Earlier today Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman revealed that starting corner back Charles Tillman will not be returning to the field in 2013.

Less than 24 hours after the Chicago Bears defeat the Cleveland Browns to keep their playoff hopes alive, it was revealed that a key member of the defense will be shut down for the remainder of the 2013 season.

Today was the day that corner back Charles Tillman was set to return to practice as per his Injured Reserve designated to return status.

When asked about Tillman returning to practice this week, Trestman said "(He's) not far enough in his recovery to do that."

We may have seen the last of Charles Tillman in a Bears uniform.

With Tillman out it's been Tim Jennings taking on the responsibility of covering teams #1 receivers.

Zack Bowman, Tillman's replacement, has played adequate in his place, but he's not the turnover machine that Tillman is.

In other injured Bears news, Lance Briggs will practice all week and the Bears are optimistic he will play on Sunday Night.

What are your thoughts on these two injuries?
