  • Vontaze Burfict: Arrested Saturday

    Burfict was arrested Saturday on a misdemeanor battery charge, ESPN reports.

    The alleged incident occurred in Nevada, although no other information regarding the arrest was made available to the public at this time. Burfict has not played in the NFL since Week 4 of the 2019 season after drawing a 12-game suspension from a helmet-to-helmet hit on Colts tight end Jack Doyle.

  • Raiders' Vontaze Burfict: Reinstated from suspension

    Burfict was reinstated from a suspension last month and hopes to play in the NFL in 2020, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Burfict opened 2019 as a starter for Oakland but was suspended for the rest of the season after a helmet-to-helmet hit Week 4 against Indianapolis. The 29-year-old linebacker has a long history of dirty hits and hasn't played at a high level since 2017, so the most he can hope for this offseason is a chance to battle for a starting job.

  • Raiders' Vontaze Burfict: Suspension upheld

    Burfict had his 12-game suspension upheld Wednesday, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Burfict's appeal to reduce the length of his suspension has been rejected, and he will not play another snap for Oakland during the 2019 season. The Raiders' attention will now turn toward finding a new starting middle linebacker. The team could rely on a combination of Dakota Allen, Kyle Wilber and Justin Phillips to fill Burfict's role, or opt to sign a replacement in free agency.

  • Raiders' Vontaze Burfict: Could have suspension shortened

    Burfict is appealing to have the length of his 12-game suspension reduced, Jon Becker of The Mercury News reports.

    Burfict certainly won't suit up for Sunday's contest against the Bears, but the results of his appeal will indicate whether or not the veteran linebacker will retake the field during the 2019 season. Considering Burfict's storied history of illegal plays -- as well as the league's evident desire to curtail helmet-to-helmet hits and resulting injuries -- it's no sure thing Burfict's appeal will succeed in reducing his suspension.
