CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict has been fined $75,000 by the NFL for allegedly stomping on LeGarrette Blount's in last Sunday's loss to the Patriots, a league source told ProFootballTalk.com

Burfict will reportedly appeal that fine after claiming he didn't stomp on Blunt's leg.

Burfict began the season serving a three-game suspension and has now been fined nine times for on-field incidents totaling nearly $300,000 in his career.

Head coach Marvin Lewis attended a disciplinary hearing with Burfict last February at the league office in which Burfict's behavior was discussed, ESPN reports.
