Injuries shake up Bears secondary


Posted by ESPN.com’s Kevin Seifert

CHICAGO -- The news only gets worse for Chicago. The Bears will play the remainder of this game, one in which they gave up 296 yards and 20 first downs in the first half, without 50 percent of their starting secondary.

Cornerback Charles Tillman (shoulder) and safety Al Afalava (shoulder) have both been declared out for this game. They are being replaced by Corey Graham and Kevin Payne, respectively.

For what it’s worth, it looks like the Cardinals already trying to run the clock out. They’ve opened the second half with four consecutive running plays.
