Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Leaves with shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burfict injured his shoulder in the second quarter of Sunday's game against Pittsburgh.

Burfict got injured while trying to tackle the Steelers' Vance McDonald, who shed multiple tackles on the play. He's currently on the sideline rather than the locker room and hasn't yet been ruled out to return.

Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Workload undecided for Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals reinstated Burfict (suspension) to the 53-man roster Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Burfict admitted earlier in the day that he was uncertain how extensively he would be used or if he would play at all Sunday against the Dolphins, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

Given Burfict's status as one of the NFL's more productive tacklers since he entered the league in 2012, it's highly unlikely the Bengals would have added him back to the roster this week if they didn't intend to use him right away. That said, the linebacker's conditioning could be an issue coming off a four-week layoff due to the suspension, which had been preceded by his absence for most of training camp while nursing a foot injury. Whether he starts or is used in a rotation at linebacker, Burfict is far from a safe bet to take on a normal snap count, which probably makes it best for fantasy owners in IDP leagues to turn to other options in Week 5.

Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Missing practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burfict (ankle, suspension) isn't practicing Tuesday, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

Burfict limped off the field at the end of Monday's practice and was taken back to the locker room on a cart. He's already suspended for the first four weeks of the regular season, so only a severe injury would impact his prospects for the upcoming campaign. Jordan Evans is the favorite to fill in at weakside linebacker, offering ample IDP potential if he also locks down a role in the nickel defense.

Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Will not play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burfict, who was removed from the NFI list Monday, will not play in Thursday's preseason opener against the Bears, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

While Burfict has been medically cleared after being sidelined with a hamstring injury, it looks like the Bengals don't see a reason to rush the linebacker back to the playing field after just a few practices. Burfict will likely be set to play in next Saturday's game against the Cowboys after he has more practice sessions under his belt.

Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Medically cleared
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burfict was medically cleared from the NFI list Monday after dealing with an apparent hamstring injury, the Bengals' official site reports.

Burfict is still due to serve a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy against performance-enhancing drugs, but he'll be eligible to practice Monday with the apparent hamstring injury seemingly behind him. He likely won't play in the Bengals' preseason opener Thursday against the Bears, but he could appear in the team's second exhibition contest next Saturday versus the Cowboys if he avoids any setbacks. During his absence, expect Carl Lawson and Jordan Evans to see additional reps at the weak-side linebacker spot.
