The extent of Burfict's injury isn't clear. Nick Vigil will step in at weakside linebacker in the interim.
Burfict injured his ankle in Wednesday's practice, and was subsequently carted off the field. It appears the Bengals may be been exercising caution with the linebacker, as he was a full participant in practice both Thursday and Friday. He appears to be set for Sunday's matchup with the Chargers.
Burfict injured his ankle in Wednesday's practice, leading to him being carted off of the field. However, the injury turned out to be minor and the linebacker was back on the field Thursday in full. The
Despite being carted off during practice Wednesday, coach Marvin Lewis believes Burfict avoided any kind of serious injury and he should be ready to play Sunday against the Browns, given he avoids a setback. Burfict may start to believe in karma after this occurrence, having been fined earlier Wednesday for stomping on Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount during the Bengals' Week 6 loss. The team may elect to proceed cautiously with Burfict's minor injury and limit his practice participation throughout the week.
It's interesting to note that was the transgression, and not his hit on Martellus Bennett, that drew the punishment from the NFL. Buff it will be back in uniform this week against the Browns.
