    LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- The Chicago Bears held out cornerback Charles Tillman on Thursday for the second-consecutive day of practice leading into Sunday’s matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the team sat down receiver Brandon Marshall towards the end of the workout after he suffered tightness in his back.

    “Brandon had a very good practice,” Bears coach Marc Trestman said. “Then, at about the middle to late practice (he) tightened up a little bit. Just to be cautious, we pulled him out of practice. He walked around and moved around. We’ll just be cautious and we’ll have him limited tomorrow.”

    Having dealt with hip issues early on stemming from his third arthroscopic knee surgery, Marshall hasn’t had any issues with his back up to this point. Marshall’s back tightness isn’t expected to affect his availability for Sunday’s matchup at Heinz Field.

    Tillman spent most of the workout on Thursday with the team’s athletic trainers doing conditioning work, according to Trestman, who said the cornerback took part in walk-throughs near the end of the sessions.

    “We worked actively with the trainers,” Trestman said. “He was limited.”

    In other injury news, the Bears listed tight end Martellus Bennett (shoulder) and guard Kyle Long (back) as having participated fully at practice. For the Steelers, running back Le'Veon Bell (foot), cornerback Curtis Brown (illness) and defensive end Brett Keisel (calf) participated fully, as did defensive tackle Steve McLendon (hamstring), and tight end Heath Miller (knee).

    Pittsburgh cornerback Cortez Allen (ankle) did not practice, and linebacker Jarvis Jones (heel) participated in a limited capacity.

    I didn't know Long had a back issue. I hope it's really minor. Back problems are especially bad for an OL.

    In case it's serious which I don't hope and don't assume then it would almost confirm the fact that Bears are having a draft curse.. Don't draft first round olinemens..

    Hopefully they'll all be fresh and ready for Steelers because we need them.. This is where an early bye would have been nice lol.

    I noticed on Cutty's sack/fumble that got returned that Kyle Long took a bad step or something and went crashing to the ground. Looked like he was grabbing for his leg, but maybe it compressed his back wrong even.

    For what reason?
    I doubt if there are more than a few guys on the whole TEAM that aren't dealing with some injury.
    Highly unlikely that anyone in pro football is exaggerating injuries............................
