Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict was originally suspended five games for an illegal hit on Chiefs fullback Anthony Sherman. Hugh says it wasn’t an illegal hit but an unnecessary one. Burfict’s suspension was reduced to three games. As far as the Ezekiel Elliott appeal, the same person who heard Greg Hardy’s appear, will be the one deciding his fate. Hardy’s suspension was reduced so there could be a chance that his may be reduced.
