Burfict was punished severely by the league after he was found to have committed two helmet-to-helmet hits against the Indianapolis Colts back in Week 4 of the 2019 season. The reason the league suspended him the rest of the season is that Burfict has an extensive history of egregious helmet-to-helmet hits and has an extensive disciplinary history to back that up.
