Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has cleared the concussion protocol and is ready for the Super Bowl on Sunday against the Eagles.
Gronkowski was asked by The News' Jerry Sullivan on Thursday at his session with reporters whether his concussion provided him with a better understanding of what Bills rookie cornerback Tre'Davious White was feeling after he was concussed by Gronkowski in the regular season. Gronkowski was suspended for one game for a cheap shot.
"Uh, no. I don't understand what that question is related to," Gronkowski said.
You hit Tre'Davious White and he got a concussion, Sullivan replied.
"I'm just preparing for the Eagles," Gronkowski said.
Gronkowski did note that he had no hard feelings toward Jacksonville's Barry Church for the play that led to the concussion.
White got wind of Gronkowski's comments on Friday and responded via Twitter:
Wonder what was going thru his head when Church layed that boom on em ... 🤷🏾♂️ https://t.co/Qt8xq18DrV

White had publicly backed off on his anger before the Bills' second meeting with the Patriots this season, saying it was time to move on.
After the hit, though, White called Gronkowski's one-game suspension "a joke."
"I'm laying there he snuck me, my back turned. He could have broken my neck," he said. "I got a son to raise. People don't think about that when they react, but that's here or there. It is what it is."
