NFL Upholds Four-Game Suspension Of Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict

Bengals' LB Vontaze Burfict has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

The suspension had been reported a month ago, but Burfict attempted to appeal the decision based on his claim that the medication he was prescribed for a concussion he suffered during the 2017 season resulted in the failed test, according to the New York Daily News.

Finally, ValuEngine lowered shares of GlaxoSmithKline from a "buy" rating to a "hold" rating in a report on Sunday, December 31st. The company had revenue of $10.14 billion during the quarter, compared to analysts' expectations of $9.89 billion.

Separate from those suspensions, Burfict has been fined $303,637 for 11 on-field incidents in his National Football League career, according to ESPN Stats & Information. "But at the end of the day we are a player-oriented business and the players are the ones that win or lose for us".

One problem: The Bengals hadn't officially shut Burfict down and he appeared on an injury report as doubtful. Evans, who was drafted previous year by the Bengals in the sixth-round, started four games during his rookie season on his way to registering 38 total tackles.

Once he completes the latest suspension, Burfict will have missed 33 of the team's last 70 games.
