Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Enjoying healthy offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burfict (concussion) has enjoyed his first healthy offseason since 2014, Cincinnati.com's Jim Owczarski reports.

Burfict spent the 2015 offseason in recovery from knee surgery and the 2016 offseason in recovery from a foot injury. Despite missing last season's final game with a concussion -- which doesn't appear to have any lingering effects -- the veteran linebacker has been able to focus on improving his overall strength and conditioning this spring, rather than some sort of rehab regimen. Thus, he's been more involved in offseason workouts than he has in the past and reportedly showed up to OTAs in great shape. Hopefully, this additional offseason preparation might help him return to the elite IDP ranks in 2017, a la his 2014 season when Burfict tallied 171 tackles, three sacks, an interception and two forced fumbles.

Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Sitting out finale
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Burfict (knee/concussion) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Ravens.

Burfict will take a seat for the second straight game after failing to appear on the practice field once again this week. Look for Nick Virgil, who logged two solo tackles in Week 16, to draw the start at linebacker.

Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Doubtful Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Burfict (concussion) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

Burfict hasn't practiced since suffering his concussion in Week 15. The Bengals and Ravens are both eliminated from playoff contention, giving Cincinnati little reason to push him to return before he's completely recovered. Nick Vigil appears in line to start in Burfict's place once again.

Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: In concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Burfict (concussion) is in concussion protocol testing, Jim Owczarski of the Enquirer reports.

Burfict will have to pass the league-wide testing procedure before he can return to the field in any extent. Look for more updates to come throughout the week, with Nick Vigil likely to see expanded reps in the veteran's absence. Should he be ruled out of Week 17, Burfict would end his season with 101 tackles, two sacks, two interceptions and one forced fumble through 11 games.

Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Ruled out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burfict (concussion) won't play in Saturday's game against Houston, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

Burfict faced long odds to play in Saturday's game as he had to try and clear the NFL's concussion protocol on a short week. Nick Vigil is likely to see a spot start in place of Burfict.
