As Eli Manning and the Giants finally try to get their offense going, they’ve had a lucky break tonight: They won’t have to face the Bears’ best cornerback.
Charles Tillman, who was listed as questionable on this week’s injury report with a knee injury, has been declared inactive for tonight’s game.
Two other high-profile Bears who were listed as questionable, tight end Martellus Bennett and linebacker Lance Briggs, are good to go.
In addition to Tillman, the Bears’ other inactives are S Anthony Walters, G/T James Brown, T Jonathan Scott, TE Steve Maneri, DT Stephen Paea and DE Cornelius Washington.
The Giants’ inactives are RB David Wilson, CB Corey Webster, C David Baas, TE Adrien Robinson, CB Jayron Hosley, S Cooper Taylor and QB Ryan Nassib.
