Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Inks three-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burfict (suspension) signed a three-year, $38.68 million contract extension with the Bengals on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Though injuries and suspensions for running afoul of league rules have limited Burfict to 26 regular-season contests over the last three years, he's clearly been one of the NFL's top-producing linebackers when he's been on the field during his five professional seasons. For his career, he's averaged 138 tackles per 16 games while adding five interceptions and seven sacks to his ledger. Burfict will open the 2017 campaign on the sideline after he received a three-game suspension for his illegal hit on the Chiefs' Anthony Sherman during the preseason, putting him in line to make his season debut Week 4 against the Browns.

Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Suspension reduced to three games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burfict's suspension has been reduced to three games following his appeal, Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Inquirer reports.

Burfict originally received a five-game suspension following an illegal hit on the Chiefs' Anthony Sherman back on Aug. 19. Instead of having to wait until Week 7 against the Steelers to play, Burfict will now be eligible as soon as Week 4 against the Browns. In the meantime, guys like Vincent Rey, Jordan Evans and Carl Lawson are all expected to chip in as a committee approach.

Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Receives five-game suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pending an appeal, Burfict has been handed a five-game suspension for an illegal hit on the Chiefs' Anthony Sherman, which occurred on Aug. 19, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Due to repeated violations of safety-related playing rules, Burfict missed the first three games of last season, which seemingly came to a head after he was flagged for unnecessary roughness on Antonio Brown in the wild-card round after the 2015 campaign. The recent hit on Sherman seemingly kicked in the next progression on the suspension chart. If the five-game ban stands after a hearing, he won't be eligible to suit up until Week 7 in Pittsburgh due to the Bengals' bye the previous week.

Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Clears concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burfict cleared concussion protocol but won't return to Sunday's exhibition due to a back injury, Richard Skinner of WKRC-TV reports.

This is a blessing for both Burfict and the Bengals alike as concussions have been a problem for the linebacker in years past. However, the extent of his back injury is unknown, so it isn't clear if he'll need to miss time.

Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Leaves with back and potential head injuries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burfict left Sunday's preseason game against the Redskins with what was initially reported to be a back injury. Subsequent reports from Fox's Erin Andrews cited that Burfict was also getting checked for a head injury.

The latter issue is the one to watch out for - Burfict lost time in recent years due to concussions. Prior to the injury Burfict had a big impact on the game, picking off a Kirk Cousins pass in the flat and returning it for a touchdown.
