“He has to work his tail off. He has to work harder now than he did to get here,” coach Marvin Lewis said. “Everyone in his inner circle has continued to reinforce that. He has to work harder now than he did to get here.”
Burfict had 29 tackles and a forced fumble in five games this season. He had 298 combined tackles and four sacks in the previous two years.
"He's heard from a lot of different people (their) recommendations, and then he's going to have to make a decision on what's best to go forward," Lewis said.
The coach added that Burfict is expected to make a decision on whether to undergo further surgery in the next few days. The linebacker isn't a lock to be ready for the start of next season.
Burfict's season ends with 29 combined tackles, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in five games.
