Bengals OLB Vontaze Burfict is officially questionable for Sunday's finale against the Ravens with a concussion.  He put in a full practice Friday, though, which indicates that he should be fine for the game.  We'll certainly watch the pregame inactives to make sure there's no setback.

Bengals OLB Vontaze Burfict missed practice Tuesday as he works through the league concussion protocol.  Burfict suffered the injury in Sunday's win over the Vikings.  We'll see if he can gain clearance in time for this Sunday's finale.

Bengals OLB Vontaze Burfict is active against the Chargers today.  He was questionable after suffering an ankle sprain in practice Friday, but we'll go ahead and start the NFL tackle leader in IDP formats for fantasy football.

Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict suffered an ankle sprain in Friday's practice and is questionable for Sunday's trip to San Diego.  If Burfict can't play against the Chargers, Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Vincent Rey would start in his place.  We'd start an active Burfict, who leads the league in tackles and faces a top 6 matchup.  The late kickoff on Sunday means you'll have to have a replacement lined up, though.  Rey or Rey Maualuga could work as emergency options if needed.

Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict missed practice Wednesday because of a knee injury suffered in Sunday's loss to the Ravens.  ESPN's Coley Harvey reports, however, that Burfict "likely will return to practices later this week."  That's certainly good news.  The league's tackle leader faces a top 10 fantasy football matchup in the Browns this week and should be in IDP lineups.

Bengals MLB Rey Maualuga is expected to miss 3-4 weeks after suffering an MCL sprain in Sunday's win over the Jets, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.  Maualuga also suffered a concussion in the game but is expected to get past that before he recovers from his knee trouble.  In Maualuga's absence, Cincinnati could shift OLB Vontaze Burfict to the middle -- his college position.

Bengals MLB Rey Maualuga left Sunday's win over the Jets early on a cart.  He injured his left knee in a 1st-half collision with RB Chris Ivory and came away with a concussion as well, according to the team website.  Recent free agent addition Michael Boley entered and would likely start with Maualuga out.  OLB Vontaze Burfict could slide to the middle to take over for Maualuga.

The Bengals have re-signed LB Rey Maualuga on a 2-year, $6.5 million deal. The fairly low sum for the 26-year-old hints at Maualuga's unimpressive standing around the league. It's also worth noting that ILBs Stewart Bradley and Jasper Brinkley found homes -- and starting opportunities -- first. Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports that the team might move Maualuga back to the strong side and give the MLB job to Vontaze Burfict. The 2012 undrafted free agent ouperformed the vet middle man last year. Maualuga, meanwhile, had his best pro season to date as a rookie SLB in 2009.
