The NFL has informed Oakland Raiders linebacker Vontaze Burfict that he hit another defenseless Indianapolis Colts player in last Sunday’s game, agent Lamont Smith told ESPN’s Josina Anderson.
Smith said Burfict was notified by letter Thursday about the unflagged hit, three days after the league suspended him for the rest of the season for repeated violations of unnecessary roughness rules.
The hit against Doyle would come later in the game, where Burfict would be ejected from the game.
His agent told Josina Anderson of ESPN that the appeal will take place next Tuesday.
