Vontaze Burfict is reportedly facing another major punishment for a brutal dirty hit in Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts.

The Oakland Raiders linebacker will reportedly be suspended for the hit and it's likely to be a big one.

ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter reports that Burfict will be suspended and, based on his history, it should be a multi-game one.

"Raiders LB Vontaze Burfict will be suspended as early as today for his hit on Colts TE Jack Doyle, per sources. Based on his history, it is likely to be multi-games," he reports.

Burfict was ejected from Sunday's game for a dirty hit in Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts. There are many calling for Burfict to be kicked out of the league for good.

Burfict clearly can't help himself when it comes to these hits, as they keep happening despite him getting suspended for them.

The NFL needs to act strongly here.
