Bengals | Vontaze Burfict accused of trying to hurt players

Mon, 13 Oct 2014 17:42:14 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict was called out by Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen Monday, Oct. 13. Olsen said Burfict was intentionally trying to injure him and QB Cam Newton following touchdowns in Sunday's tie. Video shows Burfict twisting and "cranking" the ankles of both players after they scored. "Punishment needs to go beyond a fine," Olsen said. "Guys like that don't learn from that stuff. He's been fined 100 times for head-hunting, and he did it to (WR Kelvin Benjamin) again. You watch the film; that's just what he is."
