Bengals' Burfict ejected for making contact with official

Bengals' Burfict ejected for making contact with official

An NFL spokesman denied the claims and said it is common for officials to make contact with players and there is nothing unusual with the way Burfict has been treated, according to Schefter.

Sidenote: ESPN notes this is the first ejection in Vontaze's career, which is honestly a total shocker.

Burfict was in on a tackle of Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota, who was diving for the end zone on a run.

Burfict got tossed after he made contact with an official in an incident that, frankly, doesn't look like much.

He was buckled into a auto seat and suffered only minor injuries. "Every couple weeks there are sirens going down there". John Wade, who helped call 911, was also driving down I-94 and witnessed the moments before the crash.

A few plays earlier, Burfict was flagged for a late hit out of bounds on Titans running back DeMarco Murray.

As he was leaving the field, Burfict was seen making a "money hands" gesture to the booing crowd. It was the second time that he's been suspended for an illegal hit in his career.

During his five-year National Football League career, Burfict has been forfeited over $800,000 due to suspensions and fines for numerous penalties ranging from unnecessary roughness, personal fouls and roughing the passer.
