The Chicago Bears held out cornerback Charles Tillman (knee) from Wednesday’s practice inside the Walter Payton Center but he’s expected to be ready to play in Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

“Just precautionary; he should be ready to go in practice tomorrow” Bears coach Marc Trestman said.

Tillman was listed on the injury report last Wednesday with a knee ailment that led to him participating in one practice in a limited capacity headed into the club’s Week 2 matchup with the Minnesota Vikings. Tillman appeared to reinjure the knee Sunday against the Vikings but was able to play the entire game.
