Draft Scout *Vontaze Burfict News
09/04/16 - LB Vontaze Burfict was placed on the suspended list on Saturday, so he will not count against the 53-man roster. Burfict, who did not play during the preseason, is suspended for the first three games of the regular season stemming from repeated violations of rule pertaining to player safety, most notably his hit on Steelers' receiver Antonio Brown in last year's AFC wild-card game. Coach Marvin Lewis was in no mood to discuss his embattled linebacker on Saturday. "We're not doing to discuss what Vontaze can and can't do," Lewis said. "We're not going to talk about anything to do with Vontaze. He's no longer on the team right now."

The last of these violations came when Burfict was flagged 15 yards for a personal foul against Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown late in their AFC Wild Card Game last January.
