In what will be a big boost for the defense of the Cincinnati Bengals, Vontaze Burfict has been cleared to play in Sunday’s Week 2 game against the Atlanta Falcons.
Burfict was able to practice on Friday and has been cleared by an independent neurologist to return to the football field. Burfict left the Bengals Week 1 contest in the second quarter with the concussion.
