Bears CB Charles Tillman tweeted Thursday morning that his daughter is due Monday, and he will be available for Sunday night’s game against the Texans.

Tillman tweeted at the account of ESPN Radio’s “Mike & Mike In the Morning,” “god, family, football… Baby is coming Monday don’t worry I’ll be there Sunday.”

On Tuesday, Tillman said on WSCR-AM in Chicago that his wife could go into labor on Sunday, and if that was the case, he would “have to be at the hospital.”

The 7-1 Bears host the 7-1 Texans on Sunday night. Tillman has 43 tackles, six passes defensed, two interceptions that he returned for scores and seven forced fumbles.
