New England Patriots Tight End Rob Gronkowski Suspended One Game for Late Hit on Bills Cornerback Tre'Davious White

Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White is not happy that the National Football League only gave Patriots cornerback Rob Gronkowski a one-game suspension for his cheap shot on Sunday. "But, that's here or there, but it is what it is". Gronkowski hit White in the back of the head after the whistle when he was already on the ground. After the play was over, the Patriots tight end lined up White, who was laying flat on his stomach, and crashed down with his arm on the back of Bills cornerback's helmet.

So as expected, Gronkowski was suspended for one game without pay by the National Football League (NFL) on Monday for violating the league's rules on unnecessary roughness.

White, who entered concussion protocol as a outcome of Gronkowski's elbow drop, was cleared to return to practice on Thursday. So what's that make him?

The first-team All-Pro tight end would apologize to White after the game and explain that he was just frustrated because of the lack of calls going his way. "He is what he did", White said.

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.

White didn't want to hear it.

Shortly after Sunday's game, Gronkowski told reporters, "I want to apologize to No. 27". "There was a lot of frustration".

White added: "The guy did what he wanted to do". I don't really believe in those type shots like that. "It just happened naturally through emotions and frustrations".

In reference to a text sent to ESPN NFL analyst Ryan Clark that "the whole hood want 'em", meaning Gronkowski, White declined comment. "I'll take it one game at a time", White said.
