Vontaze Burfict will not be fined for his recent contact with an official.

Burfict, a linebacker for the Cincinnati Bengals, was ejected from a recent game for brushing away the arm of a referee. On Friday, the NFL confirmed he will not be disciplined further.

This season began with a suspension for Burfict, after which the league said he had a "pattern of egregious safety-related violations."
