Bengals' Vontaze Burfict undergoes microfracture surgery
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict has gone under the knife for surgery on his knee, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

However, when the surgery was performed in October, it was not reported to be microfracture surgery. Dr. Neal ElAttranche confirmed Sunday he performed microfracture surgery on Burfict's knee.

"I don't see any reason, if this thing heals like we want and we think it will, why he won't be back like he was," said ElAttrache. "Microfracture has a bad connotation, but there are plenty of guys who have come back and been able to play like before. But it's not really news when it works out."

ElAttrache said he believes Burfict should be ready at full strength for the start of training camp.

Burfict's season was cut short by the knee injury, allowing him to play just five games in 2014, totaling 29 tackles.

Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict no lock for start of season
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who's had two knee surgeries since late October, might not be ready for the start of the 2015 season, reports the team's website. The plan is for Burfict to be back, but "there has been some concern" he'll start the season on the PUP list and miss the first six weeks, the report said.

“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.

Lewis: Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict could need more surgery
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said Wednesday that linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who was placed on injured reserve Tuesday after undergoing knee surgery on Oct. 29 and failing to recover enough to take the field, could require additional surgery before going into recovery mode, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

"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.
