Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Won't play against Chargers
While no longer a dominant force, Burfict has averaged respectable marks of 46 snaps and 5.2 tackles per game over six outings this season. His absence probably won't have much impact on a Cincinnati defense that's been hideous even when he's been healthy. Hardy Nickerson is the best bet to absorb Burfict's vacated snaps, but Vincent Rey and Brandon Bell could also get a look. Nick Vigil is the top IDP play among Bengals linebackers, averaging 7.6 tackles per game in a three-down role.
