Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict Facing 5-Game Suspension By League
Once again, Vontaze Burfict‘s player safety issues are continuing on and this time around he is facing a five-game suspension from the league.
Each of the last three seasons in league Burfict has either been suspended or fined heavily for his carelessness for player safety. The possible suspension he is facing is coming down from his illegal hit on Kansas City Chiefs fullback Anthony Sherman back during last week’s preseason game.
Vontaze Burfict will appeal the possible suspension next week. If Burfict is not successful in getting the suspension lifted he will join Adam Jones as the other Bengals defensive player to be suspended to start the regular season. If Vontzae Burfict’s suspension remains intact it will boost linebacker Marquis Flowers to starting linebacker in Burfict’s absence.
