Bengals OLB Vontaze Burfict put in a limited practice Wednesday for the 1st time since suffering a hip injury back in Week 7. He missed the past 2 games but could be on track to return Sunday against the Ravens. We'll watch his status through the week. Teammate Nick Vigil remained out Wednesday with his knee injury.

Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (concussion) is inactive for today's game against the Browns. He shouldn't have been in IDP consideration anyway.

Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens after missing the past 2 games. He put in limited practices all week, and we'd bet on the veteran playing. He's still a risky fantasy option even if active, though. Burfict played just 53%, 84% and 63% of Cincinnati's defensive snaps in his 3 appearances so far this season. Burfict has also averaged just 6.6 total tackles per game since the start of last season. Cincinnati will remain without LB Nick Vigil (knee), and MLB Preston Brown (knee) has also been ruled out.

The Bengals have ruled LB Vontaze Burfict (hip) out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. It's not clear exactly how the snaps will be aligned at the OLB spots. MLB Preston Brown looks like the best bet for playing time among Bengals LBs this week. He hasn't been a strong tackle producer, though, and the matchup is nothing special for LB scoring. You should look elsewhere for IDP value this week.

Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict left Sunday night's game against the Chiefs with a hip injury and did not return. We'll check on his status heading into a Week 8 meeting with the Bucs.

Bengals OLB Vontaze Burfict has passed his physical and rejoined the team. Burfict opened training camp on the non-football injury list because of a hamstring issue but returns with plenty of time to get ready. Of course, the veteran will still miss the 1st 4 weeks of the regular season because of a PED suspension. Cincinnati lists Jordan Evans as Burfict's primary backup on the initial ("unofficial") depth chart. IDP owners in deeper leagues can consider pairing the 2. Evans topped 80% playing time in 3 straight games last season after OLB Nick Vigil went down.
