Controversy continues to follow Vontaze Burfict.

The Bengals linebacker is reportedly going to be the subject of a review by the NFL after he appeared to hit Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett low during New England’s win Sunday.



Bennett told reporters after the game Burfict apologized.

“He apologized,” Bennett said, per USA Today. “He said he didn’t try to do it, but it’s part of the game.

"Stuff happens.”

NFL Network reports no suspension is likely, but Burfict could face a fine.
