Report: Bengals Burfict won’t be suspended for kick

Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict caught no shortage of negative attention for his kick at Steelers fullback Roosevelt Nix. But it won’t get him suspended.

Burfict’s kick will be reviewed for a potential fine, but it won’t cost him any games.

The Bengals will be relieved to hear that - the team doesn’t need any additional obstacles. The Steelers will likely have their own reaction the next time the team’s meet on Monday Night Football Dec. 4.
