Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict Not Fined For Hit That Concussed TE Garrett Graham
Last weekend, Bengals rookie linebacker Vontaze Burfict hit Texans tight end Garrett Graham and was flagged for unnecessary roughness on a defenseless receiver. Burfict’s helmet went straight into Graham’s facemask on the play. Graham suffered a concussion on that play.
Often when a player’s helmet hits another player’s helmet, the hitting player gets fined but in this case, the league opted not to fine Burfict for the hit.
Graham missed the Texans’ first game in Foxborough with a concussion. Today coach Gary Kubiak said he passed his final concussion test and is cleared to play in Sunday’s playoff game.
