Tillman (knee) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Redskins. With Tillman on the shelf after missing two days of practice this week, look for Bene Benwikere to draw the start at cornerback opposite Josh Norman. This may leave the door open for Kirk Cousins and the Washington offense to target the second-year player in the passing attack.
Tillman (knee) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Redskins. The veteran corner woke up Thursday with a swollen knee, which cause him to miss practice later that day. The severity of the injury is still unknown, but listing Tillman as doubtful is not a good sign for Panthers' fans. Look for Bene Benwikere to get the start Sunday if Tillman can't go.
Tillman (knee) did not practice Thursday, Joe Person of The Charlotte Observer reports. Tillman awoke this morning with a swollen knee, so the Panthers opted for the veteran to miss practice Thursday to receive treatment. Considering his age, it's likely Tillman will continue to deal with aches and pains throughout the rest of his career, so it doesn't appear as if this injury is too serious. Unless the 34-year-old misses practice again Friday, he should be able to play against the Redskins on Sunday.
Tillman registered eight tackles (six solo) and forced a fumble during Sunday's win over the Packers. Tillman's eight tackles marked his second-best showing so far this season, bringing his overall tally to 39 stops through his first eight appearances for the Panthers. Additionally, after picking off his first pass last week, Tillman forced another turnover on Sunday, showing his outstanding ball skills remain intact even at 34 years old.
Panthers cornerback Charles Tillman recorded nine tackles (six solo) in Sunday's game against the Saints. Tillman's nine tackles trailed only starting linebackers Thomas Davis (pectoral) and A.J. Klein for the Panthers' team lead Sunday. On the back of that outing, Tillman has now totaled 17 tackles (12 solo) and one pass defense through his first three games in Carolina.
