Charles Tillman missed last week’s game with a right knee injury, but the Bears “expect” him to play Sunday in Washington, D.C., coach Marc Trestman said Wednesday.
The cornerback didn’t practice Tuesday. Tight end Martellus Bennett (knee) did not practice either. Curiously, neither did defensive end Julius Peppers, held out with a coach’s decision that Trestman did not volunteer Wednesday. The team said later it was not injury-related.
Trestman said defensive tackle Stephen Paea (turf toe) and linebacker James Anderson (lower back) practiced on a limited basis and “looked good.” Safeties Anthony Walters (hamstring) and Major Wright (knee) were limited, too.
