Tre’Davious White responds to Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski’s late hit


The NFL laid down a one-game suspension to New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski for his late hit on Tre-Davious White, a ruling which was upheld after the fact. The play was pretty tough to watch, but regardless, Gronkowski is moving forward and it seemed that things had been pretty much finished with the situation.

But, that wasn’t quite the case, as ESPN’s Mike Rodak quoted White making a pretty strong statement about the entire situation.

Tre’Davious White calls Rob Gronkowski’s hit a “dirty shot,” saying Gronkowski “could have broke my neck. … I got a son [to raise].”

It’s a pretty powerful statement and one that’s honestly fair for White to make. Gronkowski simply lost his cool, though, and it’s a safe bet that he won’t be making that mistake again.

There is some positive news for White, as Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reported that White has passed the concussion protocol on Thursday. He should be good to go for this weekend’s game, and both teams will look to move past this situation which was certainly an ugly one.
