LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman will miss the remainder of the season because of a torn right triceps. The Bears had left open the possibility of a comeback in the playoffs after he was injured against Detroit on Nov. 10 by placing him on the injured reserve/designated to return list. Coach Marc Trestman said Monday that wont happen. He also said a decision on whether star linebacker Lance Briggs will return from a fractured shoulder this weekend at Philadelphia will be made on Friday. "Its going to be day to day," Trestman said. "Im reasonably optimistic, but its going to be through the three days of practice before a decision is made." Its possible Tillman has played his final game with the Bears given his expiring contract. He was eligible to start practicing this week, but Trestman said the two-time Pro Bowl pick is not far enough along in his recovery. Citing privacy concerns, he would not say if Tillman had surgery or when it became clear he would not be back. "I dont know if I could be specific in that area," Trestman said. "A lot of that goes to the privacy issue, respecting Charles. He was tagged because the tag was available in case he would (be ready), but it was for the latest moment of the season as we all know for that to be possible."

.Y. -- Mike Zigomaniss goal at 5:53 of the third period stood up as the winner as the Rochester Americans hung on to defeat the visiting Hamilton Bulldogs 3-2 on Saturday in American Hockey League action.SHENZHEN, China -- A day after Alexander Levy played a near-perfect 62 in the second round at the China Open -- the best 18-hole score of his career -- the Frenchman was happy just to get off the course with a 2-under 70 Saturday in pelting rain with gusting winds. That was solid enough to maintain a three-stroke lead over Alvaro Quiros of Spain heading into the final round. "It was tough to stay focused, but I kept my mind in good condition and played some good shots," Levy said. Levy, aiming for his first European Tour title, wasnt nearly as accurate as he was on Friday, when he holed a 20-foot putt for eagle and made eight birdies en route to setting a new course record at Genzon Golf Club. But he handled the nasty weather at the start of the third round and maintained his composure after bogeying Nos. 14 and 16, managing to avoid a third bogey with a 15-foot putt for par on the 18th. He has a 16-under total of 200. Levy knows he will face a lot more pressure on Sunday, even with a three-stroke cushion. Last year, he was tied with Ernie Els for the lead heading into the final round of the BMW International Open, but committed four bogeys in his last nine holes to slip to third. "I will be nervous, but because youre nervous doesnt mean you cant play well," he said. "Ill sleep nicely because Im tired. It was a long day with the weather and difficult golf course." Quiros has six European Tour titles to his credit but hasnt got a win -- or even a top-three finish -- since his title at the Dubai World Championship in November 2011. "If Alex plays really well then we might not be able to catch him," Quiros said. "It has been two-and-a-half years since I won so I have not had those feelings for a long time." Finlands Mikko Ilonen was four strokes back in third place after a 67, while Englands Tommy Fleetwood (67) and Spains Adrian Otaegui (71) were another stroke behind in a tie for fourth. A day after 15--year-old Chinese amateur Guan Tianlang failed to make the cut, another young homegrown talent, 18-year-old Li Haotong, shot a 67 to match the lowest score of the day and jump into joint eighth at 7 under.dddddddddddd. With the leaders so far ahead, Li is playing for another goal -- a big payday. The golf club has pledged to double the purse for any Chinese player finishing in the top five. While Guan has received most of the attention in China after his breakthrough performance at last years Masters, where he became the youngest player to make the cut, Li is perhaps better poised to make an immediate impact on the game. Last year, he signed an endorsement deal with Nike and coped remarkably well against elite fields at the HSBC Champions and BMW Masters in his hometown of Shanghai, finishing tied for 39th and 42nd, respectively. And after practicing on the Genzon Golf Club course for the last two months, hes close to his first top-five finish. "Im very happy. I want to keep that name on the leaderboard," he said. Englands Ian Poulter also shot a 67 Saturday to move up to equal 11th place. But Poulter said he was still smarting from a two-stroke penalty he incurred on the 13th hole Friday when he improperly measured his drop after hitting into the rough. He took a triple-bogey 8 on the hole, following a double bogey on the 12th. "I shouldnt be happy with the position Im in. I dropped five shots yesterday in two holes. Its unacceptable. Its disgraceful," he said. "I should be a lot closer to the lead, but thats golf. You cant have it perfect all the time." Third-ranked Henrik Stenson would certainly agree. The Swede hasnt played his best since coming down with the flu earlier this week, and couldnt make up any ground on the leaders Saturday, falling 12 shots behind after shooting a 71. He needed a win here to take over the top ranking from Tiger Woods -- a goal that now appears well out of reach.
