Bengals LB Burfict leaves with head injury
The play occurred late in the first half when Burfict hit his head while putting pressure on quarterback Joe Flacco. He left the field after a short delay and was declared out for the game early in the third quarter.
At the time, Burfict had four tackles and knocked away a pass.
Burfict made the Pro Bowl last year and was Cincinnati's leading tackler with 204. He also had three sacks.
Also on Sunday, Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert left with a right elbow injury. He was not expected to return.
