Rob Gronkowski suspended one game

Rob Gronkowski suspended one game

It appears Bill Belichick agrees with some of the Bills players that Rob Gronkowski's late hit on safety Tre'Davious White was dirty.

Gronkowski received a personal foul penalty, but was not ejected.

Gronkowski may have a point - his imposing size and routine dominance has seemingly prevented him from getting calls others might - but there's no debating what a dirty play he committed.

There is nearly certainly league discipline coming in either the form of a fine, suspension or both.

After White went down on the sideline, Gronk, upset at the contact from White, decided it was a good idea to take a cheap shot on the Bills' rookie and dive at the back of his head while on the ground.

"I definitely want to apologize to No. 27 [White]", Gronkowski said, per the Boston Globe. Micah Hyde called it a "dirty play" and expressed his amazement that Gronkowski wasn't ejected; Richie Incognito said he's "sure the league office is going to have something to say about it". "There was a lot of frustration". I was just really frustrated at that moment and it just happened naturally through emotions and frustrations. I don't really believe in those type shots like that.

Without Gronkowski, the Patriots will rely more heavily on No. 2 tight end Dwayne Allen, just as they did on October 5 against Tampa Bay, which was the only game Gronkowski didn't play this season (thigh injury).

Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White hauled in an interception late in the Pats win over the Bills while in coverage on Gronkowski.

Even with the suspension, Gronkowski shouldn't have much trouble reaching the second tier, as he needs a total of just 15 catches or 151 receiving yards over the New England's final three games to do so. I'm not in the business of that, " said Gronkowski. "And just a couple times during the game, and they're calling me for the craziest, craziest stuff ever". What am I supposed to do? And then they don't call that. "It was just frustration, and that's what happened". I don't know - elbow, shoulder - I don't know what it was. "That's not cool. It's wonderful to me that you don't get ejected for something like that".

"Your actions were not incidental, could have been avoided and placed the opposing player in risk of serious injury", NFL VP of football operations Jon Runyan wrote in a letter to Gronkowski notifying the Patriots All-Pro tight end of his punishment.
