ESPN's Adam Schefter, one of the most reliable and best-sourced National Football League reporters, posted a report on ESPN's blog Monday following Burfict's run-in with a down judge on the sideline during the Bengals-Titans game in Nashville Sunday.
Burfict was flagged for a late hit on DeMarco Murray, then two plays later referee Jeff Triplette announced Burfict had made contact with an official. Burfict pulled up and tried to avoid a Titans ball-carrier out of bounds.
It was Burfict's second unsportsmanlike conduct/personal foul of the game and, by rule, is an automatic ejection. On the very next play, Burfict was among a slew of Bengals who tackled a scrambling Marcus Mariota just short of the goal line.
While exiting the field, Burfict taunted Titans fans, including flashing the "get money" gesture. The brawl cost Green $42,541 in fines.
