Robert McClain will replace Tillman as the starter. McClain has played the past three games since being signed. He had an interception and six tackles on Sunday.

Tillman's injury is to the same knee that caused him to miss four games before he returned to start the past two.
He was brought back a week earlier than the team had hoped after Bene' Benwikere suffered a season-ending fractured leg against Atlanta.
It's all good everybody. We're 15-1 and have a first round bye and home field through out the playoffs. ??— Charles Tillman (@peanuttillman) January 4, 2016
Rivera said Tillman understood the risks, but "wanted to play."
