The Bears put Tillman on injured reserve on Sept. 15.
Tillman sustained the injury in the third quarter of the Bears' 28-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sept. 14. He tore a triceps muscle in the same arm last November and missed the last eight games of the 2013 season. The Bears used the short-term IR designation on Tillman last season for the injury.
Tillman leads the NFL with 42 forced fumbles since 2003.

3 weeks in a cast...I think I need a new hobby. My ADD is going to drive me nuts. Any suggestions?— Charles Tillman (@peanuttillman) September 23, 2014
