Vontaze Burfict fined $12K for kicking Steelers player

Vontaze Burfict can't escape league discipline.

The Bengals linebacker was fined $12,154 for unsportsmanlike conduct for kicking Steelers fullback Roosevelt Nix in Cincinnati's loss to tPittsburgh.

Burfict has a history of unsportsmanlike conduct and unnecessary roughness toward the Steelers. Following the 2015 AFC wild-card showdown between the two AFC North rivals, Burfict was suspended three games for delivering a shoulder hit on a defenseless Antonio Brown.

Elsewhere in the AFC, Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters was fined $9,115 for a hit against Raiders quarterback Derek Carr, one that led to the one-game suspension of Marshawn Lynch who made contact with an official in the ensuing scrum.
