Bengals | Vontaze Burfict may need surgery (Thu Dec 11, 11:08 AM) - Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (knee) may need to undergo more surgery on his knee and will make a decision in the next few days, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. Lewis said he expects Burfict will be ready for the start of training camp next season.

Our View: Losing Burfict was a huge blow to this defense and not in the least offset by the activation of quarterback AJ McCarron. That isn't much of a fair trade-off. The loss makes an inconsistent defense even less stable, and could be a good thing for the Cleveland Browns and Johnny Manziel this week.

Bengals | Vontaze Burfict placed on IR (Tue Dec 9, 03:19 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals CB Vontaze Burfict (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 9.

Our View: We haven't seen Burfict since Week 8. The Bengals rush defense has certainly struggled without him. Burfict himself was struggling through an injury-plagued third season. He had a knee operation in late October, and he should be near 100 percent healthy by the time training camp starts next year.
