The Bears are likely to have their best cornerback in the lineup as they face the daunting task of stopping Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson. Charles Tillman is expected to play against Detroit, according to the Chicago Tribune's Brad Briggs.
Tillman injured his groin during Chicago's Week 3 win against the Steelers. However, the veteran was seen warming up on Sunday morning for the NFC North battle at Ford Field, per Briggs. Tillman was officially listed as questionable on the Bears' injury report.
Chicago is currently 3-0 and a win would go a long way toward winning the NFC North. The Bears' biggest challenge will be slowing down the connection between Matthew Stafford and Johnson. With Tillman in the lineup, Chicago will have an All-Pro on the field to cover the star wide receiver.
The Bears are on the road in Week 4 against the Lions in Detroit at 1 p.m. on FOX.
