Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict facing 4-game suspension

Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict facing 4-game suspension

Adam Schefter reported Friday afternoon that Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict is facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's Performance-enhancing drugs policy. If Burfict doesn't win the appeal, it marks the third straight season he has started the season on the suspended list. "No appeal date yet", reports Schefter. "4 and that he suffered a Grade 3 shoulder AC sprain during the Detroit Lions game on December 24 and was on prescribed medications for this injury as well, per another source".

Burfict had already been ruled out for the remainder of the season at the time of testing.

This would be the first time Burfict has been suspended for off the field actions.




He has been a polarizing figure during his previous six seasons with the Bengals, highly productive with his play but repeatedly being disciplined for his transgressions.

He then received a five-game ban for a hit on Kansas City Chiefs fullback Anthony Sherman during the 2017 preseason.

He hasn't played a full season since 2013, and it's certainly cost him. Spending his entire National Football League career in Nashville, the 29-year-old defensive lineman most recently produced 18 total tackles and 1.5 sacks over the course of 15 regular-season games in 2017-18. According to ESPN, he has also paid more than $300,000 in fines - 11 total - in his career. None more high profile than his hit to the head of Antonio Brown late in the fourth quarter of the Bengals 2016 Wild Card game loss to the Steelers.
