Just Seconds Into The Game & Vontaze Burfict is Already Kicking Players

After contemplating retirement in the offseason Ben Roethlisberger's performance has been lackluster calling into question his elite status

It doesn't sound like Vontaze Burfict's lengthy suspension history is going to be getting any longer this week.

Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict and the Steelers renewed acquaintances Sunday, and it took all of 43 seconds of game time for Burfict to do something that may warrant another suspension.

From his back, Burfict kicked Steelers fullback Roosevelt Nix in the face following a scrum.

He said something similar to reporters.

Burfict was suspended for the first three games this season for hitting a Chiefs running back in preseason after a pass had been thrown downfield away from the contact.

Monday's news won't bode well in the Steelers' locker room.

"That was one of my better stiff-arms of my life", Bell said after leading his team to a 29-14 win and a 5-2 record. But I don't like the unnecessary roughness, and things that happen after the play, like my fullback got kicked in the face. "I don't know what happened or what came over me that play".

Less than a minute into the game, Burfict was already pulling out the dirty moves. It's okay to play tough and try to hit guys hard during the course of the play-that's fine. Burfict also has been fined more than $800,000 for rules infractions. For me, I just like to play respectable football.
