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.​
