Description: Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict (left knee) has been placed on injured reserve, ending his season.
Insight: Burfict is a difference maker on the field, but this season had trouble getting out there. He played in just five games. Vincent Rey will continue to start.

Description: Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict (left knee scoped) will miss Week 14.
Insight: It takes most players about four weeks to come back from a scope and we are at the five- week mark, so the injury must have been more serious than anyone expected. Vincent Rey will continue to start.

Description: Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict had his left knee scoped on Wednesday and is expected to miss at least two games according to ESPN.
Insight: It seems highly unlikely, however, that Burfict will recover in two weeks time. It takes most players about four weeks to come back from a scope. 2014 has been an injury-plagued season for Burfict as he has missed time with concussions, a neck injury, and now his knee.

Description: Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict has left the Week 7 game against Indy with a neck injury.

Description: Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict has suffered a blow to the head and had left the game against Carolina.
Insight: Burfict had a concussion earlier this season, so this isn't good news for the Bengals. He could be gone for a while. Vincent Rey will have to take over his role.

Description: Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict (concussion) is officially out Sunday versus the Titans.
Insight: Burfict has been forced out of both games thus far, and now durability is becoming an issue. Cincinnati will hope to get their star linebacker back for Week 5, as the bengals have their bye during Week 4. Vincent Rey will start in Burfict's OLB spot.

Description: Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict left Week 2 game with Atlanta due to a neck stinger.
Insight: Burfict was forced out of the season opener after a blow to the head. He will not return and this is quickly becoming a recurring theme. Can he stay healthy and on the field?

Description: Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict suffered a possible head injury in the second quarter against the Ravens on Sunday.
