Vontaze Burfict: Cincinnati Bengals linebacker ejected for making contact with official

Share

Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict has earned a reputation as one of the dirtiest players in the National Football League and Sunday's matchup with the Tennessee Titans won't do much to change that fact.

"He has to understand", Bengals coach Marvin Lewis told reporters after the game. In those situations, everybody's over there, and you just can't push back. "He knows better. We pay a price, we pay a price because he hurts us when it's on the field that way and then he's not on the field, so both ways".

Pakistan Army captain, sepoy martyred in cross-border attack from Afghanistan
Operation Khyber-4 was launched to stop infiltration of terrorists from across the Pak-Afghan border. Two soldiers were also martyred and 15 were injured during the operation.

Other players might not have been subject to as harsh of a punishment but, at the same time, at some point Burfict has to realize that his history means that he's always going to be under a microscope.

Burfict was suspended for three games earlier this season for making contact with a defenseless player in the preseason. He has not played in a full 16-game campaign since 2013 thanks to a combination of suspensions and injuries.

USA emissions are expected to decline by.4 percent, compared to a typical decline in the country of about 1.2 percent per year. Future Earth's executive director Amy Luers said, "This year's carbon budget news is a step back for humankind".

Burfict initially was flagged for a late hit on DeMarco Murray and apparently made contact with an official pleading his case.

This is the second straight week the Bengals have had a player ejected. Last Sunday, wide receiver A.J. Green was tossed from Cincinnati's matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars after tussling with cornerback Jalen Ramsey.
