Burfict's three-game suspension was upheld by appeals officer Derrick Brooks, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports.
As expected, Burfict will miss the first three games of the 2016 season due to repeated on-field incidents, culminating with his cheap shot on Antonio Brown in a playoff loss to the Steelers. He's an excellent player, but his value to the Bengals has been dampened by a combination of injuries and careless penalties. He has 14 unnecessary roughness flags and 401 tackles in 47 games through four seasons.
Dennard expects to be available for 2016 training camp after undergoing shoulder surgery sometime in the next couple of weeks, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.
Dennard hasn't made much of an impact during his two years in the league but appeared to be turning a corner shortly before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury last week. While he's expected to make a full recovery, it seems likely that he'll be in store for another ancillary role on the Bengals' defense next season.
Graham (knee) is expected to be ready to play Week 1, general manager John Schneider told Seattle's KJR radio Wednesday.
Graham ruptured the patella tendon in his right knee in Week 12 last season. Schneider said Graham might not be ready for the first couple preseason games, but that getting him ready for Week 1 is the priority. That still might be optimistic, as patella ruptures are notoriously severe injuries.
Rawls (ankle) is expected to be ready to play Week 1, general manager John Schneider told Seattle's KJR radio Wednesday.
Rawls suffered a season-ending broken ankle in Week 14 last year. His rehab has gone well, but Scheinder said the team won't push him to return for preseason games. Week 1 is the priority. Rawls, who impressed last year as an undrafted rookie, will start this year after Marshawn Lynch retired. The Seahawks likely will bring in some camp competition, but if Rawls is healthy, he'll be the No. 1 RB Week 1.
Richardson (hamstring) was placed on season-long injured reserve Saturday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.
Richardson appeared in just one game this season, making one catch for 40 yards against the Cardinals in Week 10. The former second-round pick has been a disappointment thus far in his young career, but he's expected to be ready for training camp next season.
Seahawks running back Tharold Simon has been placed on injured reserve Saturday, per Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR.
Simon dislocated his toe a week before the regular season opener and briefly played in Week 2 before dislocating it again. With the team hurting at that position, Rod Smith was called up from the practice squad to take Simon's place on the roster.
