Tre'Davious White, the Bills cornerback injured on the late hit by Rob Gronkowski, blasted Gronk's "dirty shot" that "could have broken my neck" and said the Patriots tight end's one-game suspension was "a joke."

White, who is no longer in the concussion protocol and was a limited participant in Bills practice, spoke to reporters Thursday, including ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak, who tweeted some of White's comments:
Tre’Davious White calls Rob Gronkowski’s hit a “dirty shot,” saying Gronkowski “could have broke my neck. ... I got a son [to raise].”— Mike Rodak (@mikerodak) December 7, 2017
"Man, it's a joke, dog. Man, I don't know what to say on that," White told reporters, including Rodak. "I'm laying there. He snuck me with my back turned. He could have broken my neck. I mean, I got a son to raise. All that. People don't think about that when they just react."
More from White, via Rodak:
"I'm glad I had my mouthpiece in. I probably could've bit my tongue off. I bit my lip pretty bad. A terrible headache. It is what it is. He did what he wanted to do."
Clark refused to elaborate on a text he sent to ESPN NFL analyst Ryan Clark that seemed to suggest the Bills would exact revenge on Gronkowski when the Bills come to Foxboro on Christmas Eve.
"That's between me and Ryan...Nobody knows other than me," he told reporters, including Rodak.
