Raiders’ Vontaze Burfict ejected after ugly helmet-to-helmet hit

Oakland Raiders linebacker Vontaze Burfict once again found himself on the opposite end of the referees' whistle on Sunday, as he was ejected for a helmet-to-helmet hit.

Early in the second quarter, Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle caught a pass for a first down. As he was going down with the ball, Burfict came in, leading with his helmet, and hit Doyle in the head.

Burfict was ejected for unnecessary roughness. It was the sixth ejection of his career.

The replay of the hit can be seen below.

Burfict is a controversial player in the NFL because of a history of rough and dirty hits. Several members of the NFL called for Burfict's suspension or total removal from the NFL.
