The Pittsburgh Steelers aren't happy with Vontaze Burfict after a tackle by the Cincinnati Bengals linebacker during Sunday's game ended running back Le'Veon Bell's season.

Pittsburgh linebacker Vince Williams is so upset, in fact, that he has no interest in waiting until Dec. 13—when the Steelers and Bengals meet again—to confront Burfict. He wants to take care of business pronto.

Early Monday morning, Williams sent out a tweet (which has since been deleted) that put Burfict on alert. Well, the Cincinnati linebacker didn't back down, letting the Pittsburgh defender know that he's willing to rumble.

Given that both players are linebackers, the two will not be on the field at the same during when the teams meet again. But Williams wants a shot at Burfict to avenge Bell's injury, so he let the Bengals Pro Bowler know.

There's no denying that Burfict has a history of dirty plays, as he drew a $25,000 fine last season for twisting the ankles of the Carolina Panthers' Cam Newton and Greg Olsen during a game. However, there haven't been many suggestions that Bell tearing his MCL was anything more than a freak accident.
