Rob Gronkowski should find out Monday if he'll be suspended

Rob Gronkowski should find out Monday if he'll be suspended

Bill Belichick was short (and not sweet) when asked about New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski's illegal hit on Sunday.

Zolak thought that White was holding on the play and that somehow excused Gronkowski's retaliation.

"Your actions were not incidental, could have been avoided and placed the opposing player at risk of serious injury", Runyan wrote in his suspension notification letter to Gronkowski. "The Competition Committee has clearly expressed its goal of 'eliminating flagrant hits that have no place in our game.' Those hits include the play you were involved in yesterday".

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Gronkowski will appeal the suspension, which would cost him $281,250 in lost salary. White, a first-year player in the midst of on a potential Defensive Rookie of the Year-caliber season is now being evaluated for head trauma due to the reckless play from one of the NFL's premier faces. White was treated in the concussion protocol after the game. He met with Bills coach Sean McDermott on the field, and the play came up in discussion.

Gronkowski, who was suspended for his late hit on Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White on Sunday, restructured his contract before this season.

I had to become a whistle-blower", he said showing proofs of his communication with state wing of the party. This comes after Prime Minister Narendra Modi praised him for raising his voice against dynasty politics.

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.

Gronkowski apologized to White after the game.

"I understand", Belichick said. "I'm not in the business of that". It was a lot of frustration.

"First of all, I definitely want to apologize to No. 27 (White)". "We'll see him again in a few weeks".

Gronkowski now has three days to decide whether he will issue an appeal of the one-game suspension that will be heard by either Derrick Brooks or James Thrash, who are the officers that were appointed jointly by the National Football League and NFLPA to decide appeals of on-field player discipline.
