CHICAGO -- Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman's wife gave birth to the couple's fourth child. They were expecting a girl.

Tillman thanked his Twitter followers for their "thoughts and prayers" and added "Wife and baby are doing great" in a post Tuesday.

Tillman's status for Sunday's game against Houston was in question after he told a Chicago radio station he might have to miss it. He later said he expected to be available and wound up playing in a loss to Houston.
