LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman will miss the remainder of the season because of a torn right triceps.

The Bears had left open the possibility of a comeback in the playoffs after he was injured against Detroit on Nov. 10 by placing him on the injured reserve/designated to return list.

Coach Marc Trestman said Monday that won't happen. He also said a decision on whether star linebacker Lance Briggs will return from a fractured shoulder this weekend at Philadelphia will be made on Friday.

"It's going to be day to day," Trestman said. "I'm reasonably optimistic, but it's going to be through the three days of practice before a decision is made."

It's possible Tillman has played his final game with the Bears given his expiring contract.

He was eligible to start practicing this week, but Trestman said the two-time Pro Bowl pick is not far enough along in his recovery. Citing privacy concerns, he would not say if Tillman had surgery or when it became clear he would not be back.

"I don't know if I could be specific in that area," Trestman said. "A lot of that goes to the privacy issue, respecting Charles. He was tagged because the tag was available in case he would (be ready), but it was for the latest moment of the season as we all know for that to be possible."
