PITTSBURGH (CBS) — Bears cornerback Charles Tillman is active for Sunday night’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Tillman did not practice Wednesday or Thursday this week and was limited Friday. He has been battling a knee issue for the last two weeks.

Meanwhile, as expected, tight end Heath Miller (knee) is active for the Steelers and will play in his first game of the season. He should give a boost to the Steelers’ passing game, which currently ranks 26th with just 198.5 yards per game. Pittsburgh will once again be without rookie running back Le’Veon Bell (foot), however, who is inactive despite fully participating in practice Thursday and Friday this week.

With Tillman active, the Bears’ inactives remain the same as last week. Here is the full list for both teams:

Bears Inactives
WR Marquess Wilson
CB C.J. Wilson
RB Michael Ford
OG James Brown
OT Jonathan Scott
DE David Bass
DT Zach Minter

Steelers Inactives
QB Landry Jones
WR Derek Moye
RB Le’Veon Bell
CB Cortez Allen
CB Isaiah Green
C/G Cody Wallace
DT Hebron Fangupo
