Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict caught no shortage of negative attention for his kick at Steelers fullback Roosevelt Nix. But it won’t get him suspended.

Burfict’s kick will be reviewed for a potential fine, but it won’t cost him any games.

The Bengals will be relieved to hear that - the team doesn’t need any additional obstacles. The Steelers will likely have their own reaction the next time the team’s meet on Monday Night Football Dec. 4.
