Burfict, who signed by the Bengals as an undrafted free agent in 2012, underwent microfracture surgery on his left knee in January.
Burfict will miss the first six games of the regular season. He is eligible to remain with the team for rehabilitation and meetings, but is not able to participate in practice. After the conclusion of Week 6, he will begin a window of eligibility to return to practice under a roster exemption, if he is medically cleared.
