NFL concussion protocol

Vontaze Burfict was reportedly fined $112,000 by the NFL for what Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports was “multiple” instances of unnecessary roughness in Week 6.

Burfict appeared to intentionally go after Antonio Brown in the game, and Pittsburgh Steelers players were very upset about his continued dangerous hits.



At least one Steelers player advocated for the NFL to suspend Burfict once again, and it’s hard to argue against that logic. Given the man’s extensive history of eschewing player safety, not to mention pure head-hunting, it’s hard to understand why the NFL isn’t coming down harder on Burfict.
