Bears cornerback Charles Tillman doesn't want his career to end with a torn triceps.

Seeing his career coming to a close, Tillman is hoping to return this postseason for one more go-around. After tearing his triceps this past Sunday, Tillman was placed on the injured reserve-designated to return list.

“Mariano Rivera – I want to go out like him,” Tillman said while appearing Chicago radio station 670 the Score. “He got hurt and said ‘Naw, I'm not going out like that, I'll be back.' That's my goal. I can't go out with an injury and just call it quits. I can't do that.”
