Tillman (triceps) signed a one-year contract with the Panthers on Thursday, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Tillman may have the most recognizable name in the Carolina secondary, but the Panthers' young defensive backs came on strong at the end of the 2014 season. The 34-year-old corner will likely just be third or fourth on the depth chart entering training camp, with Josh Norman and Bene Benwikere seemingly locked into the top two spots. Tillman should have plenty of time to recover from the torn triceps that cost him nearly all of the 2015 season.

Tillman, who has already been ruled out for the season, underwent surgery Tuesday to repair his torn right triceps, ESPN Chicago reports.

Tillman's season has been cut short for the second straight year due to the same injury. With the former Pro Bowler sidelined, rookie first-rounder Kyle Fuller will continue to start at cornerback. In his past two games, Fuller has played quite admirably, tallying 14 tackles (11 solo), three interceptions, and two forced fumbles.

Tillman (triceps) is expected to be placed on season-ending injured reserve, ESPN reports.

Tillman missed the final eight games of last season due to a triceps injury and unfortunately re-aggravated the same ailment Sunday night versus the 49ers. An exceptional cornerback when healthy, Tillman's absence is certainly an unwelcomed development for the Bears' secondary. With the 11-year veteran ruled out, promising rookie first-rounder Kyle Fuller is expected to step up and become Chicago's starting cornerback opposite Tim Jennings.

Tillman suffered a triceps injury, and he will not return to Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Tillman, who missed the final eight games of last season with a triceps injury, was ruled out for the night shortly after getting hurt. That obviously doesn't bode well for his future availability, which means rookie first-round draft pick Kyle Fuller may assume the starting job. With Sherrick McManis (quad) previously exiting Sunday's game, the Bears are down to just two healthy cornerbacks -- Fuller and Tim Jennings.

Tillman accrued four tackles in Sunday's loss to the Bills.

The tackle total was slightly less than we've been accustomed to seeing from Tillman over the last few seasons, but made up for it by limiting the Bills' number of big plays in the passing game. Even as his production declines in his age-33 season, Tillman still figures to collect enough tackles and force enough turnovers to rank among the better IDP defensive back options by season's end.
