Gronkowski, a Buffalo-area native, received an unnecessary roughness penalty on the play and a one-game suspension from the National Football League that will force him to miss the Pats' Week 14 road game against the Miami Dolphins on Monday night. "A dirty player. Simple", White said. And for Gronk to take it to that level, I don't know.
In responding to questions about helmet-to-helmet hits and players launching to make tackles, Vincent says Wednesday that the National Football League has seen targeting reviews "work to a degree" in the college game. I'm laying there, he [hit] me with my back turned. Apologizing is the least Gronkowski could do for a hit that, as White noted, came after the play, with his back turned, and could have caused a serious injury. So what's that make him? "He is what he did", White said. If I'm the coach, yeah, you want to play smart, you don't want to play dirty, you don't want to get that penalty and all that.
White, who entered concussion protocol as a effect of Gronkowski's elbow drop, was cleared to return to practice on Thursday.
Asked what he's heard from Gronkowski since the play, White said, "Nothing".

Without Black Adam, the most well known villain for the hero, there aren't many villains left for Shazam to tussle with. DC's Shazam is continuing to gain momentum on the road to filming, as a major casting has been announced.
Gronkowski apologized to assembled media after the game by saying: "First of all, I definitely want to apologize to No. 27 (White)". "I'm not in the business of that. At that moment, it happened naturally through emotions and frustration", he added.
"No. His intentions were what he did", White said.
In reference to a text sent to ESPN NFL analyst Ryan Clark that "the whole hood want 'em", meaning Gronkowski, White declined comment. "No one knows other than me", he said.
