Bears put CB Tillman on IR with broken ribs

Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman was placed on injured

reserve and will miss the season finale against Detroit after

breaking his ribs.

Defensive lineman Israel Idonije also went on IR on Wednesday

because of a foot injury.

Tillman, second in the NFL with six forced fumbles, was

injured during the Bears’ 36-30 overtime victory over Minnesota on

Monday night. He broke his ribs and sustained a lung contusion on a

helmet hit from teammate Craig Steltz< as they tried to tackle

Minnesota’s Visanthe Shiancoe on a catch.

Tillman was hospitalized after being transported off the

field on a stretcher.
