Draft Scout *Vontaze Burfict News
10/20/14 - LB Bengals trainers confirmed Monday the injury that forced linebacker Vontaze Burfict from Sunday's 27-0 loss at Indianapolis was a neck strain and not concussion-related.
"He's fine," Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said.
Burfict hurt his neck late in the first quarter while tackling Colts quarterback Andrew Luck following a 2-yard gain.
It was the third time this season an injury has forced the Pro Bowl linebacker to miss the remainder of a game. Concussions knocked him out of the first two games of the season and forced him to miss the next two.
He also left last week's Carolina game with a blow to the head, but later returned to play a season-high 93 percent of the defensive snaps (78 of 84).
For the season, Burfict has been on the field for only 33.3 percent (157 of 474) of the snaps. Last year, he played 96 percent of the snaps (1,102 of 1,147).
10/12/14 - LB Vontaze Burfict cleared concussion protocol and returned to action after missing two games with two separate concussions. Burfict's return was a boost for the defense, which allowed 505 yards, including 220 rushing in last week's loss to the Patriots. But there was a scary moment when Burfict took a blow to the helmet and briefly exited to the locker room before returning moments later.
10/08/14 - LB Vontaze Burfict practiced Wednesday for the first time since suffering a concussion Sept. 14 against Tennessee.
10/01/14 - LB Vontaze Burfict missed practice Wednesday while still under the league's concussion protocol.
09/29/14 - LB Vontaze Burfict, who has missed all or parts of each game this season due to concussions, did not practice Monday, but head coach Marvin Lewis said he expects to have the Pro Bowler back this week.
