Burfict (knee/concussion) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Ravens.

EDGE Analysis

Burfict will take a seat for the second straight game after failing to appear on the practice field once again this week. Look for Nick Virgil, who logged two solo tackles in Week 16, to draw the start at linebacker.

Burfict (concussion) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Burfict hasn't practiced since suffering his concussion in Week 15. The Bengals and Ravens are both eliminated from playoff contention, giving Cincinnati little reason to push Burfict to return before he's completely recovered. Nick Vigil appears in line to start in Burfict's place once again.

Burfict (concussion) is on concussion protocol testing, Jim Owczarski of the Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Burfict will have to pass the league-wide testing procedure before he can return to the field in any extent. Look for more updates to come throughout the week, with Nick Vigil likely to see expanded reps in the veteran's absence. Should he be ruled out of Week 17, Burfict would end his season with 101 tackles, two sacks, two interceptions, and one forced fumble through 11 games.

Burfict intercepted two passes while adding 15 tackles Sunday against the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Burfict had an incredible afternoon, as he posted his highest tackle total of the season and posted his first interceptions of 2016. He's been an absolute beast since Week 4, and aside from the linebackers who consistently sack the quarterback, he's one of the very best IDP options in the league.
