As expected, Bengals star linebacker Vontaze Burfict was ruled inactive this morning for today’s game against the Titans.

It comes as little surprise after Burfict was diagnosed with his second concussion in two week’s following last week’s game against the Falcons.

As you can see, the Bengals will also be missing starting right guard Kevin Zeitler, so the offensive line will need to deal with Titans defensive tackle Jurrell Casey without their best interior lineman.  The Bengals will likely look to Mike Pollak in his stead.

On the bright side, the list is missing star wide receiver A.J. Green, who was seen warming up before today’s game.

Green’s presence will help the Bengals passing game deal with the Titans formidable secondary.

Hopefully Bufict can be ready for the Bengals next game against the Patriots in Week 5; the Bengals have their bye in Week 4.
