Last week, Lorenzo Booker made the 53-man roster on the strength of his special teams contributions, but sustained a slight concussion in the preseason finale and hasn't practiced all week.
So maybe that plays a part into why Booker was placed on IR today and Armando Allen promoted in his place to the 53-man roster off the practice squad. Allen will be the third running back...
The Chicago Bears announced that cornerback Charles Tillman suffered a leg injury during today’s win over the Colts.
Charles Tillman has a leg injury. His return to the game is questionable. #Bears

Tillman never returned to the game. As soon as we get an update on his status, we’ll let you know.
The Chicago Bears made a commitment to addressing their aerial attack this offseason by acquiring Brandon Marshall from the Miami Dolphins and drafting Alshon Jeffery in the second round of April's draft.
Despite Jeffery's stellar preseason (eight receptions, 106 yards) he has been placed as the No. 3 wideout on the depth chart behind Marshall and Devin Hester.
Bears receiver Brandon Marshall is still the apple of Jay Cutler's eye. Marshall had nine receptions for 119 yards and a touchdown in his Chicago debut.Fantasy Spin:Marshall had two 100-catch seasons with Cutler at the helm in Denver and a third seems likely this season.

Bears Pro Bowl cornerback Charles Tillman suffered a lower-leg injury on a punt return, and he was removed from the lineup late in the first quarter.

Andrew Zeoli shares his in game thoughts (literally) during the Bears' victory over the Colts. No he's not out of his mind he's just what a lot of Bears fans truly are, and who can blame him?
