Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Hit under league review

Burfict's hit on Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett during the fourth quarter of Sunday's game is being reviewed by the league, NFL.com reports.

Burfict, who was suspended for the first three games of this season for repeated violations of safety-related playing rules, was seen making an unnecessary, low hit to Bennett away from a fourth-quarter play Sunday. That incident has sparked another review of Burfict by the league, which could result in some form of punishment for the much-scrutinized linebacker. In three games played, Burfict has totaled 21 tackles thus far, but he also might've earned his first fine of the season already as well, if not worse.
