Tillman Has Back Surgery

| July 27th, 2009

David Haugh is reporting that Charles Tillman will miss training camp and the preseason due to back surgery.

Needless to say…bad news.  Mike Florio, over at PFT, adds this:

Tillman missed the final two games of the 2006 season with a similar problem.  In February 2007, he underwent surgery to repair a herniated disc in his back.

We now have a starter in the defensive backfield (already a weakness) with a chronic back issue.  There’s now a lot of pressure on Nathan Vasher to return to form.
