Gronkowski received a one-game suspension for the disgusting hit. The New England tight end said his actions were out of frustration thinking White should have been flagged for pass interference on the play. "I don't know what to say on that". "I'm laying there he snuck me, my back turned". I mean, I got a son to raise. "But, that's here or there, but it is what it is". He didn't have to hit White on the back of the head and neck area while White was already lying on the ground. White stayed down for several minutes before walking off the field.
Since that time, the All-Pro tight end has been suspended for one game (pending appeal) but that has not stopped those around the National Football League from weighing in on what exactly he did on the field. He was cleared from the NFL's concussion protocol on Thursday, putting him in a position to play Sunday when Buffalo (6-6) hosts Indianapolis (3-9). "I just want to apologize to Tre'Davious White". "He is what he did". Dirty shot, so what does that make him? If I'm the coach, yeah, you want to play smart, you don't want to play dirty, you don't want to get that penalty and all that.
Clark gave his own interpretation of the text, which was "they want to put them hands on him".
Listed at 6-foot-6 and 265 pounds, Gronkowski used his full force in landing on White, who is 5-foot-11 and 192 pounds.
