Vontaze Burfict LB CIN 10 Days

The Bengals placed Burfict (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday.

Burfict has been sidelined since Oct. 26, and he apparently was not showing much improvement in his health, as Tuesday's transaction means he will not play again this season. Burfict had a disappointing campaign, but he led the NFL with 171 tackles in 2013, so don't forget about him as an IDP option next season.
