Belichick Apologizes to Bills Coach McDermott for Gronkowski Cheap Shot

Belichick Apologizes to Bills Coach McDermott for Gronkowski Cheap Shot

The NFL suspended New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski one game on Monday for a late, gratuitous hit to the head of Bills defensive back Tre'Davious White.

Considering Gronkowski dove head-first into a defenseless player laying facedown on the turf, drove his elbow into the back of White's head and caused a concussion, it's hard to see how the league doesn't suspended Gronkowski at least a game.

Gronkowski will appeal the punishment, his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told The Associated Press.

The hit in question occurred late in Sunday's game after White intercepted quarterback Tom Brady. White was taken to the locker room with a head injury.

If Gronkowski chooses to serve the suspension, the Patriots will turn to Dwyane Allen as the starting tight end. "I'm not in the business of that".

"I definitely want to apologize to number 27", he said, referring to White. "There was a lot of frustration".

Gronkowski, who will be eligible to return to the active roster following the team's December 11 Monday night game against the Miami Dolphins, also apologized after the game. In last week's 35-17 victory over the Dolphins, Gronkowski caught five passes for 82 yards and touchdowns of 5 and 15 yards.

At 6-foot-6 and 265 pounds, he is bigger than the players trying to cover him, and he has increasingly complained that officials ignore interference by defenders because his size can make it seem inconsequential. "I don't really believe in those types of shots like that, but just due to frustration and the game of football, emotions, that's what happened". "There was a couple of times in the game they're calling me for the craziest stuff ever". "And it's like insane, like, what I am supposed to do?" And then they don't call that? He ended the game with nine catches for 147 yards, but the Bills rookie clearly got under his skin on that play that ended in an interception. It just happened naturally through emotions and frustration.
