Charles Tillman.  On Friday, coach Marc Trestman said he was “reasonably optimistic” that Tillman would play, according to ChicagoBears.com.

After being  listed as questionable on the injury report with knee and groin problems that occurred during the win against the Pittsburgh Steelers last Sunday, Tillman will be expected to shutdown Detroit’s all-pro receiver, Calvin Johnson.  Johnson had  eight catches and 106 yards in the  two games against Chicago last season.

Tillman, 32, has 14 tackles and two interceptions this season. He hasn’t  missed a start since the 2009 season . Tillman was limited at practice on Friday after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday.

  1. I think Tillman is going to struggle against Calvin. If Tillman is even remotely banged up that is bad news against the best receiver in the game. I think the Lions win this won at home. Cutler is the big factor in determining who wins.
