Chicago fans must be happy to know that the Bears will have their top cornerback available when they face Aaron Rodgers his Monday night, because the will need him.
According to Pro Football Talk, starting corner Charles Tillman has been listed as probable on the Bears’ official injury report. Tillman was limited during practice this week with a knee injury.
This is good news for the Bears, who are already reeling from other injuries. Starting quarterback Jay Cutler and outside linebacker Lance Briggs have already been ruled out of Monday’s game. Facing off with Rodgers and the rival Green Bay Packers is already bad enough with Josh McCown starting under center. With Tillman missing from the lineup too, it would be hard to imagine a situation where the Bears improve to 5-3.
Bears wide receiver Joe Anderson is also questionable with an abdominal injury.
On the other hand, the Packers have been dealing with their own injury woes. Tight end Jermichael Finley and outside linebacker Clay Matthews are out, while the Packers’ other starting linebacker, Nick Perry, is doubtful. Wide receiver James Jones is questionable with a knee injury, but tight end Ryan Taylor, linebacker Brad Jones, and cornerback Sam Shields are all probable.
