Rob Gronkowski’s suspension upheld, TE will miss Miami game

(Bob DeChiara/USA TODAY Sports)

The NFL announced Tuesday afternoon that it has upheld the one-game suspension of Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, which means he will sit out Monday’s game in Miami against the Dolphins.

Gronkowski’s ban was levied after a late hit in Sunday’s win over the Bills, where he delivered a shot to Buffalo defender Tre’Davious White following an interception. Gronkowski apologized for the late hit after the game, and expressed a level of frustration for the clutching and grabbing he has endured over the years.
