There's a chance that Chicago's star corner will be absent from Sunday night's game.
"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."

Tillman has had a breakout year this season for a Bears defense that has scored eight touchdowns through eight games. Tillman has forced seven fumbles alone -- including four in last week's win over the Tennessee Titans -- and has returned two interceptions for touchdowns. For his career, Tillman has forced 35 fumbles and returned seven picks for scores. Those seven forced fumbles are already a career high for him in one season.
His first daughter, Tiana, is 5 years old. She was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy, a condition that causes an enlarged heart, and received a heart transplant when she was 3 months old. Tillman and his wife appeared on Oprah in April 2011 when his wife met the mother of his daughter's heart donor.
