    Panthers' Charles Tillman: Surgery slated for Wednesday

    Tillman (knee) will have surgery to repair his torn ACL on Wednesday, the Charlotte Observer reports. Tillman has already been placed on season-ending injured reserve after tearing his ACL in Week 17. While his veteran wisdom should be valuable to the Panthers' secondary going forward, his injury adds to teammates Bene Benwikere's to leave Carolina a bit thin in that area. At the time, Tillman has reportedly not made a decision about retirement, but that will probably come some time after the Panthers' season ends.

    Panthers' Charles Tillman: Placed on IR

    Tillman (knee) has been placed on injured reserve, Joe Person of The Charlotte Observer reports. Tillman was playing with a partially torn ACL, knowing that he could suffer a full tear at any moment. It finally happened in Week 17, leaving the Carolina secondary without two of its top three cornerbacks for the playoffs, as Bene Benwikere suffered a broken leg bacj in Week 14. Robert McClain will likely be the new starter across from Josh Norman, with Cortland Finnegan serving as the nickelback. Set to turn 35 in February, Tillman will likely give some thought to retirement, despite proving that he's still a starting-caliber player. If he does decide to come back, he'll face a serious challenge to be ready by Week 1. Either way, he'll be universally regarded as one of his generation's top defensive backs, likely garnering serious consideration for the Hall of Fame.

    Panthers' Charles Tillman: Torn ACL

    Tillman (knee) suffered a torn ACL during Sunday's win over the Buccaneers, the Charlotte Observer reports. Tillman will miss the remainder of this season, potentially bringing his wildly successful 13-year career to an end as well. The 34-year-old had been playing through a partially torn ACL, so Sunday's injury was a known risk taken by the veteran. With Tillman out, Robert McClain is expected to start at cornerback opposite Josh Norman.

    Panthers' Charles Tillman: Returns to the field

    Tillman tallied five tackles (four solo), an interception and a forced fumble in Sunday's win over the Giants. Tillman returned to the field in a big way on Sunday after a knee injury kept him out of the last four games. The veteran corner was responsible for two turnovers, including the only interception in the game, and he made a big impact on the edge from a tackling perspective. Tillman doesn't hold a ton of value as an IDP, but he does get a lot of passes thrown his way with teammate Josh Norman on the other side of the field.

    Panthers' Charles Tillman: Probable to face Giants

    Tillman (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Giants. Tillman logged full practices Wednesday and Friday, sandwiched around a limited showing Thursday. His expected return carries added importance, as the Panthers recently lost fellow cornerback Bene Benwikere (leg) for the remainder of the season. Tillman should thus be locked in as an every-down player across from Josh Norman, with Cortland Finnegan likely manning the slot.

    Panthers' Charles Tillman: Limited Thursday

    Tillman (knee) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, the Panthers' official site reports. In the aftermath of drills, head coach Ron Rivera tabbed Tillman as "practice tired," according to Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer. The comments are one day removed from Rivera calling Tillman "a little rusty" after a full practice showing, placing a question mark over his potential to return from a four-game absence Sunday versus the Giants in New York.

    Panthers' Charles Tillman: Practices fully Wednesday

    Tillman (knee) practiced fully Wednesday, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports. Afterward, head coach Ron Rivera said, "He had a good day and did everything in the live drills, showing all the movements you need to have in your corner. He was a little rusty - the conditioning wasn't where it needed to be - but he moved around good...The biggest test will be tomorrow to make sure everything is fine, and then we'll go from there." The aforementioned rustiness isn't a surprise after missing the past four games with a hyperextended right knee, but Tillman appears on track to return Sunday against the Giants in New York. Nonetheless, he must navigate practice this week without a setback to ensure that comes to fruition.

    Panthers' Charles Tillman: Doubtful for Sunday

    Tillman (knee) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Falcons, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. Tillman has been a limited participant all week in practice which isn't a reassuring sign for Panthers' fans. This could be Tillman's fourth straight game on the sidelines while dealing with a swollen knee. Bene Benwikere will likely grab the start if Tillman isn't able to go.
