(93.7 The Fan) - After being ejected Sunday during a game against the Colts, Raiders linebacker Vontaze Burfict has been suspended for the season without pay.

Burfict was ejected early in the second quarter after being called for unnecessary roughness on a helmet-to-helmet collision with tight end Jack Doyle.

Even before referee Scott Novak announced to the crowd what a replay review determined, Burfict was jogging into the locker room.

It's not the first time Burfict has run afoul of league rules. He had 11 fines and suspensions in seven seasons with Cincinnati before joining the Raiders.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
