Illustration for article titled Tank Johnsons Bodyguard Killed

Willie B. Posey was pronounced dead after being shot in the back during a fight outside a Chicago nightclub last night. Police wouldn't immediately confirm if it was the same Willie B. Posey who was arrested at Tank Johnson's house during a raid on Thursday, but Tank Johnson was seen leaving the hospital were Posey was taken early this morning.

Posey was the guy arrested with two ounces of marijuana during the raid. Johnson, who wasn't at home at the time police showed up, was arrested later on misdemeanor weapons charges.


Bears head coach Lovie Smith has said that Johnson would not play this weekend, but said that the action was not disciplinary; rather, it was aimed at giving the Bears the best chance to win.
