Bears cornerback Charles Tillman could miss the team's game against the Houston Texans this week due to the birth of his fourth child, according to WSCR 670 The Score.

Tillman's third girl is due on Monday, but he said he would be at the hospital on Sunday if the baby was to arrive early.

Tillman is third on the team with two interceptions behind safety Major Wright, who has three, and NFL-leader Tim Jennings who has six. Tillman also has 44 tackles and seven forced fumbles on the year.

Tillman has twice been named the Defensive Player of the Week this season and also earned Defensive Player of the Month honors in October.

Chicago begins a two-game stretch this Sunday against two of the top teams in the league as it faces the 7-1 Houston Texans this week and the San Francisco 49ers in Week 11.

Chicago has opened the season with a 7-1 record which puts them one-game behind the 8-0 Atlanta Falcons for the best record in the NFC.
