Burfict is expected to miss the next two weeks at least.
At 24, Burfict is battling through his most difficult season in the NFL, though he has the security of a four-year extension that he signed before the season. At the moment, it's looking like a smart move by the Pro Bowl linebacker.
In the meantime, a wary Bengals defense will need to recover. So far this season, Lewis' defense has been gouged for 140.7 yards per game on the ground, good enough for 29th in the NFL.
Here are some other injuries we're tracking on this Week 9 Wednesday in the NFL:
Following practice, Green told reporters he felt good, noting that he will "do a little bit (Thursday) and see how it goes," via ESPN. Green added that, should he play this weekend, he won't take limited snaps. "I'm just going to play as hard as I can and see what happens."
- Broncos running back Montee Ball didn't practice Wednesday because of a groin injury. Denver's other running back, Ronnie Hillman, was limited due to a shoulder injury, per the Boston Globe. Via NFL Media's Alex Flanagan, Hillman said he "landed funny" on his shoulder and will be fine to practice tomorrow.
