The NFL did not distinguish how much he was fined for each hit.
According to the report, Burfict has been fined $416,000 in his career, though some of that may have come down with appeals.
Burfict missed the first four games of the season due to a PED suspension. Since returning to the field, he has 15 tackles and two passes defensed in two games.
