Burfict lowered his helmet to initiate contact on Colts tight end Jack Doyle following a reception.
Raiders linebacker Vontaze Burfict was ejected from Sunday's 31-24 win over the Colts for a late helmet-to-helmet hit.
Burfict was called for unnecessary roughness in the second quarter for hit on Colts tight end Jack Doyle during a third-down play. At first the Raiders received a 15-yard penalty, but after a review of the video, Burfict was also ejected.
Burfict has a history of being ejected and fined for dirty hits. According to Spotrac, he has more than $4.2 million in career fines and has been suspended 10 games.
Burfict played seven seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals before the Raiders signed him to a one-year deal. He had 17 tackles for Oakland heading into Sunday's contest.
Doyle did not appear to suffer an injury after the hit and remained in the game.
