Vontaze Burfict’s reckless and dirty past may finally be catching up to him.
The talented first-year Raiders linebacker is reportedly facing a season-long suspension for his helmet-to-helmet on Colts tight end Jack Doyle Sunday.
Burfict drove the crown of his helmet into the head of a defenseless Doyle, who on the ground, only needed to be touched with a single finger to be ruled down.

Burfict waved and blew the crowd kisses on his way to the locker room.
Per insider Chris Mortensen, the hit could cost Burfict his season via a season-long suspension.

If Burfict is suspended for the remainder of the season, the penalty will mark the longest suspension ever for an on-field act in NFL history.
