Tre'Davious White says 1-game ban for Rob Gronkowski 'a joke'

Tre'Davious White Dion Dawkins receive top scores from Pro Football Focus

Dirty shot, so what does that make him? However, the penalty was not severe enough to White, who spoke to reporters in Buffalo Thursday afternoon (quotes courtesy of ESPN reporter Mike Rodak). "I'm laying there he snuck me, my back turned".

Gronkowski was suspended for Monday night's game in Miami against the Dolphins. White did not see Gronkowski coming and had no way to brace for the 265-pound tight end that was about to land on him. I mean, I got a son to raise.

White was hit by Gronkowski after he intercepted a pass in the Bills' 23-3 loss to the Patriots in Week 13. "People don't think of that when they just react".

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 didn't have to hit White on the back of the head and neck area while White was already lying on the ground.

Gronkowski was flagged for unnecessary roughness on the play, but surprisingly, he wasn't ejected for the hit. "I'm definitely (ticked) off", White said. "Bad headache. It is what it is".

While White's availability for a critical game against the Indianapolis Colts at New Era Field hasn't been confirmed, clearing the concussion protocol is a key step toward being active for Sunday's contest.

"I want to apologize to No. 27", he told reporters after the game.

"The thing that surprised me just as much ... we didn't retaliate. I don't really believe in the type of shots like that", Gronkowski said. "At that moment, it happened naturally through emotions and frustration", he added.

White was asked if had heard an apology from Gronkowski.

"No. His intentions were what he did", White said. "No one knows other than me", he said.
