Bears' Tillman: I'll be back for first game

Posted by admin on July 29th, 2009

Charles Tillman doesn’t know quite what to make about the fuss in the wake of his back surgery two weeks ago, and the cornerback vowed to be ready for the regular season Tuesday on the Bears’ Web site.

The surgery was performed two weeks ago in Los Angeles by Dr. Robert Watkins. The timetable for a return to the field was six to 12 weeks, meaning he has four to 10 weeks to go.
