CINCINNATI -- Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict was carted off the field on a backboard late in the game after a helmet-to-helmet hit from Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster.

Burfict, who will not return, was tended to outside the locker room, before the Bengals medical personnel -- at the behest of Burfict -- removed the straps on the backboard. Burfict then jumped to his feet and walked into the locker room under own power.
