Peanut Tillman Injury: Bears CB Hurts Right Leg

Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman has limped off the field with an apparent right leg injury in the team's season opener against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday afternoon. He was noticeably struggling with pain as he tried to leave the field, stopping multiple times to gather himself before ultimately reaching the sideline.

Tillman, 31, has been one of the key cogs in Chicago's defense for nearly a decade. Durability has been part of that, as the veteran has missed just three starts over the past five years. At the moment, it's unclear how serious the injury is, but the player's discomfort was obvious.

For all things Bears, check out Windy City Gridiron.
