CB Charles Tillman Has Chipped Bone in Right Foot

Charles Tillman has what is believed to be a chipped bone in his right foot, Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune reports. This according to a league source. The injury, however, does not appear to be serious, and it’s possible he can play through it.

Tillman did not finish Sunday’s 28-10 victory over the Vikings after exiting with what was labeled an ankle injury. It appeared that Vikings tight end Rhett Ellison stepped on Tillman’s foot during a third-and-short play early in the second quarter. Tillman exited, received medical attention, re-entered then left again.

Tillman tried to re-enter the game several times as he anxiously stood on the sideline. Had the score been close, he might have returned. After the game, Tillman left Soldier Field with a walking boot on his right foot. When asked what the medical staff said about the injury, Tillman responded, “Nothing.”
