Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Candidate to be released
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals may move on from Burfict (concussion) during the offseason, ESPN.com's Katherine Terrell reports.

Burfict played just 43 games the past five seasons, limited by a mixture of suspensions (three), concussions (seven documented) and other injuries. He's only 28 years old, but his peak form hasn't been seen since 2016 and the new coaching staff doesn't have any investment. Burfict has two seasons remaining on a three-year, $33.2 million extension, with a dead cap charge of only $1.8 million if the Bengals decide to release him, per overthecap.com. He'd presumably need to accept a pay cut to have any chance at staying in Cincinnati.

Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Won't play Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burfict (concussion) was ruled out for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

Burfict didn't practice this week, as he has yet to clear the concussion protocol and will finish the season missing three of the last four games. The 28-year-old has seven documented concussions -- including two in the last month -- and will likely reevaluate his long-term outlook with his 2018 season officially concluded.

Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Concussion issues mounting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burfict's (concussion) career could be in jeopardy as he has officially sustained seven career concussions, including two in the last month, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

The more worrying part of this equation is that Burfict could very well have suffered additional concussions that went undiagnosed, complicating the issue even further. The 28-year-old is currently in the concussion protocol following Sunday's loss to the Browns, and it seems fairly unlikely he'll be able to play Week 17 with his career seemingly hanging in the balance.

Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Sits out Wednesday practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burfict (concussion) was held out of Wednesday's practice, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

Burfict sustained the head injury during Sunday's loss to the Browns. With the NFL's revamped concussion protocol, it could take some time for Burfict to return to the field. It seems likely that the veteran will miss Sunday's regular-season finale, but nothing is set in stone at the moment.

Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Exits game with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burfict suffered a concussion during Sunday's game against the Browns and is ruled out to return, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Burfict, who missed the Bengals' last two games in the league-mandated concussion protocol, suffered some friendly fire on a hit from Sam Hubbard and was forced to exit versus the Browns. The veteran linebacker will remain sidelined for the duration of Sunday's contest with the seventh concussion of his career.
