Tillman May Not Play Sunday If Wife Goes Into Labor

(WSCR) As the Bears prepare for their prime time matchup against the Texans on Sunday night, one of the team's best defensive players might not be in attendance.

Cornerback Charles Tillman, who is having a career year through eight games, told 670 The Score's Laurence Holmes he may miss Sunday's game if his wife goes into labor.

"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."
