After almost 24 hours of talk on the illegal hit that Rob Gronkowski gave to the back of Tre'Davious White's head, the NFL has come down with a decision on discipline for Gronkowski. He's been suspended one game.

Tre'Davious White is in the NFL's concussion protocol as a result of the hit. Gronkowski will miss the Patriots matchup at the Dolphins on Monday night football next week. 

Gronkowski's reputation will certainly take a hit with many in his hometown here in Buffalo. He's eligible to return to the Patriots on December 12th. No word yet on if he will attempt to appeal the suspension.
