Tre'Davious White: I've moved on from Gronkowski hit

Tre'Davious White: I've moved on from Gronkowski hit”

Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott does not want his players thinking this week about retaliating against New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski for his illegal hit December 3 on Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White. "I knew that he wasn't that type of player and we just honed in and just moved on from it".

"So yeah, I'm not a guy who's going to try to do a cheap shot after the whistle".

Sunday was arguably Rob Gronkowski's best game of his NFL career, and he was recognized by the league as he was named the AFC's Offensive Player of the Week for Week 15. "Going in there and winning would be the best revenge ever".

The Bills are still in the playoff hunt, having won two straight since losing to the Patriots, 23-3.

Gronkowski was penalized for unnecessary roughness and suspended one game after he dove into White after the rookie cornerback made an interception in the fourth quarter of the teams' December 3 meeting. White also made it clear he wasn't happy that Gronkowski failed to apologize directly to him and, instead, did so while talking with reporters after the game.

The hit caused White to suffer a concussion, and the rookie later criticized Gronkowski for a dirty hit that White said could have resulted in a broken neck. Following the tight end's locker-room apology, White called Gronkowski's suspension a "joke". After that game, in which Gronkowski jumped on White while he was on the ground and delivered a forearm to the back of the helmet, White and other Bills hinted at revenge in Sunday's rematch in Foxborough.

"We've got a tough test ahead of us this Sunday", White said.

The New England Patriots are coming off the most entertaining and controversial game of the 2017 National Football League season. The Patriots are 11-3 and have clinched the AFC East but have yet to secure a first-round bye in the playoffs.
