Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict is listed as questionable after spraining his ankle at practice on Friday, reports Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Burfict has yet to miss a game in his two seasons with the Bengals. He leads the team this year with 76 tackles and 41 assists.

The Bengals had announced earlier this week that linebacker Rey Maualuga was listed as probable for the team's game against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday. Maualuga has been out since late October with a concussion and a knee injury.
