Oh, Vontaze.

Vontaze Burfict is a beast, but even Nick Fairley thinks he has a "questionable" playing style. He seems like he's just roid raging 24/7 and he does not care who gets in his way. So, it really shouldn't be a surprise that he "allegedly" assaulted a teammate. Dennis Erickson played cover-up at media days, but the story's already out there; according the SportsbyBrooks:

"In the aftermath of a verbal confrontation between Burfict and Arizona State wide receiver Kevin Ozier during a Wednesday Sun Devil practice, the star ASU linebacker initiated a blindside attack on Ozier from inside the team’s locker room, sucker-punching the diminutive wide receiver in the face.

"The force of the blow knocked Ozier, who Burfict outweighs by 50 pounds, to the ground.
Ozier, who was initially unresponsive after Burfict delivered the brutal, blindside shot to his head, eventually recovered from the assault.

"Despite Erickson being fully aware of Burfict’s attack on Ozier, the Arizona State coach has not held Burfict out of any practices since last Wednesday’s incident nor mentioned Burfict’s locker room assault on Ozier to the public.

"In addition to his missing Saturday’s annual Arizona State football media day, a national magazine cover shoot involving Burfict was also recently scrapped."

Hey, man, Vontaze keeps it real (watch #7).
