Bears' Charles Tillman sees 'greatness' in rookie CB Kyle Fuller

Thursday September 18th, 2014

Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman praised rookie cornerback Kyle Fuller less than a week after Fuller recorded two interceptions in the team's comeback win over the San Francisco 49ers.

From The Chicago Tribune:

"I just see greatness," Tillman said of Fuller. "He had a hell of game, great coming out party. If anybody was happy for him, I was.

"I think, too, though, we have a good defense. And my role right now is to help our defense out, not just Kyle Fuller. I think my overall role is to help out our team. That's the point I want to really get across."

Fuller is set to take Tillman's spot in the starting lineup after Tillman was placed on season-ending injured reserve with a torn right triceps.

The Bears selected Fuller, 22, with the No. 14 pick in this year's draft. The 5-foot-11, 190-pounder recorded six interceptions and 173 tackles over four seasons at Virginia Tech.
