  • Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Facing another suspension
    By RotoWire Staff

    Burfict is facing a four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Known for his fines, ejections and suspensions as much as his excellent work between the lines, Burfict hasn't played more than 11 games in a season since his spectacular 171-tackle campaign in 2013. This helps to explain Cincinnati's recent signing of Preston Brown, who tied for the lead league with 144 tackles last season. Burfict's track record won't help his case if he decides to appeal the suspension.

  • Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Misses six games in 2017
    By RotoWire Staff

    Burfict recorded 69 tackles, 1.5 sacks, two pass breakups and one forced fumble over 10 games in 2017. Burfict is a force to be reckoned with when available, but he's had trouble staying on the field in recent seasons due to a combination of suspensions and injuries. The case was no different in 2017, as Burfict was suspended for the first three games of the season after being deemed to have made an illegal hit in the preseason and was ejected from another in Week 10 after making contact with an official. He then missed three of the final four games with a concussion and shoulder injury. The 27-year-old is set to return in 2018 after signing a three-year extension with the Bengals in September, but it might be unrealistic for IDP owners to count on him being available for the entire campaign.

  • Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Downgraded for Week 17
    By RotoWire Staff

    Burfict (shoulder) was downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports. Burfict was listed as doubtful after not participating at practice this week so it's unsurprising to see him downgraded as the Bengals try to play spoiler in Week 17. Jordan Evans and Hardy Nickerson should both see increased snaps at weak-side linebacker as Burfict's injury-marred 2017 season -- one that also included a suspension -- officially comes to an end.

  • Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Doubtful for Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Burfict (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports. Burfict sat out of practice this week, so with nothing but pride to play for Sunday, the doubtful designation isn't much of a surprise. If he indeed sits out, expect a mix of Jordan Evans and Hardy Nickerson to fill in at weak-side linebacker.

  • Burfict (shoulder) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Burfict returned from a two-game absence due to a concussion to suit up for the Week 16 win over the Lions, only to exit early after hurting his shoulder. With little on the line for the Bengals during the season finale Sunday against the Ravens, don't be surprised if Burfict is held out of the contest if he's less than 100 percent healthy before the weekend.
