Patriots' Gronkowski suspended one game for late hit
Dec 05, 2017, 01:15
Given the relatively quick trigger National Football League officials have had on player ejections this season, I was really surprised that New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski did not get thrown out of Sunday's 23-3 victory over the Buffalo Bills. Gronkowskiw will appeal the suspension and a decision on whether he will play in this Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins will be made later in the week.
After the game yesterday, Belichick said he didn't get much of a look at the hit by Gronkowski, although video captured by Rochester sports anchor Prescott Rossi showed Belichick apologizing to Bills coach Sean McDermott after the game.
For example, they are particularly deep at running back, so Gronkowski's absence could lead to more two-running-back groupings in certain situations; they've had a couple of big plays in recent weeks with both Rex Burkhead and James White on the field at the same time. Had Steratore recognized Gronkowski's punch to the head of White, who was on the ground and later evaluated for a concussion, as the flagrant act that it was, we probably wouldn't be having a conversation about a possible suspension. I'm not in the business of that", Gronkowski told reporters after the game " It was a lot of frustration. I just want to apologize to Tre'Davious White. "I was just really frustrated and at that moment it just happened naturally through emotions and frustration", Gronkowski said. It was unclear what McDermott said to Belichick to elicit that response from the Patriots coach.
Asked to elaborate on the source of his frustration, Gronkowski cited an offensive pass interference call against him in the first half. "It was just frustration". For the game, Gronkowski caught nine passes for 147 yards but felt he was consistently held and did not get the benefit of the doubt from the officials. "And it's like insane, like, what I am supposed to do?" And then they don't call that [on White].
