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]."

"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."
"That's between me and Ryan...Nobody knows other than me," he told reporters, including Rodak.
