REPORT: Vontaze Burfcit Facing 5-Game Suspension For This Hit From Preseason Game vs Chiefs

Vontaze Burfict facing a suspension for a dirty hit? He’s already in midseason form.

The troubled Cincinnati Bengals linebacker is now facing a five-game suspension for this illegal hit that during the Bengals-Chiefs preseason matchup earlier this month.

While the punishment seems harsh for simply hitting an opposing player in a defenseless position, Burfict is a repeat offender.

He is reportedly appealing the suspension that could end up costing him $882,353 in lost base-salary game checks.

 

If the suspension holds, Burfict would miss the Bengals matchups against the Ravens, Texans, Packers, Browns and Bills and make his season debut in Week 6 of the 2017 NFL season.
