Oakland Raiders linebacker Vontaze Burfict is done playing in the NFL for the 2019 season.

According to Ian Rapoport, he was hit with a season long suspension after he hit Jack Doyle of the Colts in the head Sunday. (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)

A suspension was certainly expected. I’m not sure anybody thought it’d be for the next 12 games and any potential postseason run made by the Raiders.

Clearly, this is a major sign that Roger Goodell and the league are done playing games when it comes to head injuries.

It’s also just the latest suspension in a long line of them for Burfict. The man is constantly in trouble.

I wouldn’t be surprised at all if this was the end of the line for Burfict’s career. Banning him for the whole season is a pretty clear sign that the league’s had enough of his antics.

This wasn’t his only issue this season! He threw a punch earlier in the year.

Good riddance, Burfict! The league has had enough and so have the fans!
