LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman and tight end Martellus Bennett are questionable for Sunday’s game at Washington.
Both were limited in practice on Friday because of knee problems.
The Bears elevated linebacker Jerry Franklin to the active roster from the practice squad and placed middle linebacker D.J. Williams on injured reserve. Williams, signed in the offseason to help replace Brian Urlacher, ruptured his left pectoral muscle tendon against the New York Giants on Oct. 10.
Franklin appeared in the final three games last season for Chicago, recording two special teams tackles.
