National Football League found Vontaze Burfict committed second helmet-to-helmet hit

National Football League found Vontaze Burfict committed second helmet-to-helmet hit”

Bell suffered a torn MCL that ended his season in early November, and he hasn't forgotten about it in the wake of Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr labeling Burfict as somehow "misunderstood" and describing the punishment as "excessive".

Burfict was ejected following a helmet-to-helmet hit Sunday against Colts tight end Jack Doyle.

Burfict played only 16 snaps Sunday. And Vontaze Burfict won't play the rest of the year? I think that's a little excessive, if you ask me.

In 2015, Bell was hit on the sideline by Burfict and it caused a knee injury. "It's not like I don't want him on the field, but I just want him to play clean. We don't get a lot of time to play this game in our lives".

Carr again referenced the fight between Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey and Cleveland Browns receiver Odell Beckham Jr. At that time I was in the best shape of my life, I was doing everything right, so then when I got hurt, it just kind of like set me back and I kind of went into this like, I don't want to say depression, but it was something close to it.

Gruden, meanwhile, said he had already spoken to NFL vice president of football operations Jon Runyan.

New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell recently discussed Vontaze Burfict's 12-game suspension on the latest episode of the 17 Weeks from Uninterrupted, SiriusXM, and Pandora.

The appeal hearing will be presided over by former NFL Hall of Fame linebacker Derrick Brooks, jointly appointed by the NFL and the NFL Players Association. "Your contact was unnecessary, flagrant and should have been avoided. For your actions, you were penalized and disqualified from the game". Bell made it very clear he thinks the National Football League finally did the right thing by suspending him. He served suspensions during the 2016 and 2017 seasons due to repeated violations of player safety rules.

While the team waits out the Burfict suspension, as an appeal will be heard Tuesday, they are extremely thin at the linebacker position.

The Raiders, without Burfict, will face the Chicago Bears on Sunday at London's Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Whitehead, who wore a hat with Burfict's No. 55 on it when addressing reporters Wednesday, compared Burfict to a "brother".
