Nobody, including Vontaze Burfict, can seem to tackle Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt. The linebacker’s latest attempt to do so ended in him leaving the field with a left hip injury on Sunday Night Football.

He’s doubtful to return to the game, which is just as well as the Bengals are barely competing at this point.

Burfict was already playing under the microscope after being dealt with $112,000 worth of fines from the Bengals’ Week 6 game against the Steelers. Earlier in the game, he was seen arguing with the officials from the sideline following the Chiefs first touchdown drive. It also seemed like he was arguing with Marvin Lewis.

UPDATE: Burfict has been ruled out.
