The Bengals could be without Vontaze Burfict for five games for his hit during the team’s preseason game against the Chiefs.

During Cincinnati’s second game of the preseason, Burfict delivered a hit to Kansas City running back Anthony Sherman that was determined to be illegal by the NFL. You can see video of the hit below.

As a result, Burfict is facing a five-game suspension, as reported by Adam Schefter.

Schefter also adds Burfict is appealing the decision with the hearing expected to take place next week.
