Description: Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict had his left knee scoped on Wednesday and is expected to miss at least two games according to ESPN.
Insight: It seems highly unlikely, however, that Burfict will recover in two weeks time. It takes most players about four weeks to come back from a scope. 2014 has been an injury-plagued season for Burfict as he has missed time with concussions, a neck injury, and now his knee.
 
10/19/2014 2:20:00 PM
Description: Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict has left the Week 7 game against Indy with a neck injury.
Insight: Burfict has been dealing with concussion and neck issues all season, though this looked like a stinger on a hit of Andrew Luck.
 
10/12/2014 2:09:00 PM
Description: Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict has suffered a blow to the head and had left the game against Carolina.
Insight: Burfict had a concussion earlier this season, so this isn't good news for the Bengals. He could be gone for a while. Vincent Rey will have to take over his role.
 
9/21/2014 12:13:00 PM
Description: Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict (concussion) is officially out Sunday versus the Titans.
Insight: Burfict has been forced out of both games thus far, and now durability is becoming an issue. Cincinnati will hope to get their star linebacker back for Week 5, as the bengals have their bye during Week 4. Vincent Rey will start in Burfict's OLB spot.
 
9/14/2014 3:55:00 PM
Description: Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict left Week 2 game with Atlanta due to a neck stinger.
Insight: Burfict was forced out of the season opener after a blow to the head. He will not return and this is quickly becoming a recurring theme. Can he stay healthy and on the field?
 
9/7/2014 2:59:00 PM
Description: Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict suffered a possible head injury in the second quarter against the Ravens on Sunday.
Insight: The injury seemed to come when Burfict laid a lick on Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco. It is a high possibility that Burfict suffered a concussion.
 
12/29/2013 6:16:00 PM
Description: Cincinnati linebacker Vontaze Burfict finished with 14 tackles on Sunday.
Insight: Burfict will end the season with 171 tackles, a career-high and the most we've seen in the NFL since Jerod Mayo had 175 in 2010. The Arizona State alum was invited to his first Pro Bowl earlier this week.
