The NFL will take into account Gronkowski's immediate and full apology after the game.
Even though he plays for the all-conquering New England Patriots, the rambunctious tight end is the exact opposite of the Patriots way in every way imaginable.
Bills head coach Sean McDermott said White is in concussion protocol as a result of the hit, which, shockingly, resulted only in a personal foul and not an ejection to boot.
Gronkowski also apologized after the game and said that he was frustrated by the officiating throughout the game.

He remained on the ground and appeared dazed following a hit over the middle by safety Bradley McDougled in the third quarter. Referee Tony Corrente and his crew hit the Eagles with 44 yards' worth of penalties in the first quarter.

Total sales at the U.S. number-two automaker came in at 210,771 vehicles, slightly better than the forecast by Edmunds. Ford said Explorer deliveries jumped 25 percent, while the F-Series truck line had its best November since 2001.
Given how tight of a ship the Patriots run, we imagine Gronkowski will be on his best behavior for the remainder of the season.
But the frustrations of constantly being clutched, grabbed and held boiled over to the point that Gronk finally snapped during the fourth quarter of yesterday's 23-3 Patriots win over the Buffalo Bills.
Former NFL quarterback and CBS analyst Tony Romo said that Gronkowski could be suspended for the hit. "I don't really believe in the type of shots like that".
"I'm not in the business of that". "I just want to apologize (to White)". And during their 38-31 loss at the New York Jets, the Chiefs really looked like a team without discipline or direction, undone by so many penalties down the stretch that cornerback Marcus Peters flipped out and flipped a yellow flag into the stands after one whistle. "I'm sorry. I apologise". It just happened naturally through emotions, frustration. A couple times in the game. "It wasn't cool. The game was at a big margin at the time and there's no need for that". I mean, like what am I supposed to do? "I said "anybody else makes that type of play, they're ejected". It was just frustration. And the awesome play, as the best tight end in the entire National Football League, helps smooth out the childishness as well.
Gronkowski, who grew up in western NY, finished with nine receptions for 147 yards.
