Burfict (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

Though Burfict took a step forward in his recovery from the concussion by returning to practice Thursday in a limited fashion, the Bengals determined he wasn't on track to clear the NFL's protocol for head injuries before Sunday. As a result, Burfict will be sidelined for the second straight game, with Jordan Evans likely to pick up most of the reps at weakside linebacker.
