Bears' Tillman expects to play against Houston
Tillman's status had been up in the air after he told Chicago radio station WSCR-AM that he might not be available because his wife, Jackie, is due to give birth.
But in a message to ESPN Radio's "Mike & Mike In The Morning" show, he wrote "god, family, football... Baby is coming Monday don't worry I'll be there Sunday."
This will be the couple's fourth child. Their daughter, Tiana, needed a heart transplant a few months after she was born in 2008.
