Cornerback Charles Tillman, whose two interceptions led to one touchdown and a thwarted Cincinnati scoring threat last Sunday, was held out of some plays during the Bears’ “team” portions of practice on Wednesday.

Tillman, who has not missed a game in three seasons and only one in each of the two before that, will be in the lineup next Sunday when the Bears work at stopping Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson.

“I do expect him to play,” coach Marc Trestman said. “He was limited today. He did do some work. Not just in individual but during team and I just think it’s just precautionary not to give him all the reps but he was out there working.”

Tillman was forced out of the Cincinnati game briefly with an upset stomach and a touch of dehydration. He returned, however, and was able to play 50 of the Bengals’ 55 snaps for the game.

“I was just a little dehydrated, but that’s an easy fix,” Tillman said. “IVs fixed that: Pedialyte, Coconut Water. I’m good.”
