Bears cornerback Charles Tillman has a chipped bone in his right foot after suffering an injury in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Vikings, according to reports.
The injury is not expected to be serious and Tillman could have likely returned to the field in the matchup against Minnesota, but since the Bears dominated the game in their 28-10 victory, the team kept him on the sidelines.
There's no word yet on whether he will play against the Seahawks this upcoming weekend.
MESA, Ariz. – The Cubs released Munenori Kawasaki on Tuesday, allowing the popular, high-energy Japanese infielder to see what's out there while still keeping the door open for his return.
The timing would also allow the Cubs to avoid paying the $100,000 retention bonus to Kawasaki, who's played parts of five big-league seasons with the Seattle Mariners, Toronto Blue Jays and last year's World Series team.
"Hopefully, we get a chance to sign him back," manager Joe Maddon said at the Sloan Park complex. "A guy like him needs to take advantage of how well he's playing and possibly see if there's a chance to get a major-league job."
With that move, the Cubs cut the roster to 30 players on their second-to-last day in the Cactus League this spring. Between Addison Russell, Ben Zobrist and Javier Baez – and prospects like Ian Happ and Chesny Young – the Cubs would appear to be covered up the middle for now.
"You can never have enough middle infielders," Maddon said. "I'd love to have him, no question. Hopefully, he's going to be back. Again, this is one of those things where the word 'release' is a very harsh word, but I think it can be rectified possibly. I hope he comes back to us."
Kristin Cavallari continues to chronicle husband Jay Cutler's life as a free agent in the most epic way possible.
With a revealing Instagram photo Tuesday morning, she may have hinted at a position change for the former Bears QB...to tight end! (Get it?)

Smokin' Jay takes on a whole new meaning now.
It's still apparent Jay Cutler just "DOON'T CAAAREE."
There are so many Bears jokes and puns to be made here:
Once a bare, always a bare?
Bare at heart?
Looks like he's in some bare weather.
We know who KCavs' tight end sleeper is in fantasy football this year. No ifs ands or butts about it.
OK I'm out.
