When it was first reported that Cincinnati Bengals was to be suspended for violation of the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs, he tried to indirectly blame JuJu Smith-Schuster.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport also reports that the $11.3m guaranteed portion of Burfict's $33m three-year contract with the Bengals will become void because of the suspension.

This is the third consecutive season in which Burfict will not be eligible to play in Week 1 due to a suspension. "Sure, we have conversations on that a lot", Bengals director of player personnel Duke Tobin said last month at the annul league meetings.

Cincinnati Bengals outside linebacker Vontaze Burfict has been suspended again.

Reacting to the hit - which left Brown with a concussion - the National Football League suspended Burfict three games for the start of the following season, noting his history of such conduct.

It's yet to be seen if one of the four games that Burfict will miss to open the 2018 regular season will include a contest against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

In 2016, Burfict was suspended the first three games after his illegal hit on Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown in the playoffs as well as other player safety infractions.
