Bears’ Charles Tillman and Martellus Bennett are active

Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman and tight end Martellus Bennett are both active today. Bennett has been a solid tight end for the Bears. He has caught 31 passes for 349 yards and three touchdowns.

Bennett had been dealing with a knee injury and was listed as questionable for the game against the Bears but it looks like he’ll play in some capacity. Cornerback Charles Tillman also was listed as questionable as well, and has also been battling a knee injury. Having Tillman is huge for the Bears defense. He is arguably one of the league’s best cornerbacks.

“He’s not getting any worse,” Trestman said, via the Chicago Tribune. “He’s only getting better. The last game he played was a good sign. And the rest has certainly helped and if we can get him through this one, he’s going to have an opportunity to get another week (off) and that should help.”
