Ray Lewis on Gronkowski hit: 'One of the worst plays I've probably ever seen'

Former NFL linebacker Ray Lewis is among the many decrying the hit by Rob Gronkowski on Tre'Davious White that led to Gronkowski being suspended for a game.

During this week's episode of "Inside the NFL" on Showtime, Lewis said, “That was probably one of the worst plays I’ve probably ever seen in football. That you would attack the guy from the back like that on a regular play? We are talking about just a regular football play. And for Gronk to take it to that level, I don’t know.  Does one game [suspension] do enough? I don’t know.”

Gronkowski's suspension was upheld Monday and he will miss the Patriots' game against the Dolphins on "Monday Night Football."

Interestingly, the Patriots have a 20-5 record without Gronkowski since 2010 and 9-0 since the start of the 2016 season, according to ESPN. 

During a conference call with the media on Wednesday, NFL executive Troy Vincent said the penalty "was fair, was firm."
