  • Buccaneers' Russell Gage: Avoids neck injury

    Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles confirmed Tuesday that Gage (concussion) has movement in all of his extremities and should be released from the hospital later Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Gage was hospitalized after exiting late in the fourth quarter of Monday's 31-14 loss to the Cowboys in the wild-card round upon taking a hit to the back of his head/neck area. While Gage has been diagnosed with a concussion, Bowles disclosed that the Buccaneers have ruled out any neck injury for the veteran receiver. Provided he isn't experiencing long-term symptoms of the concussion, Gage looks like he'll be a full participant by the time OTAs begin in the spring. Gage, who tallied two catches for 10 yards on eight targets before exiting Monday's contest, finished the regular season -- his first in Tampa Bay -- with a 51-426-5 receiving line over 13 games.

  • Buccaneers' Russell Gage: Has movement in all extremities

    The Buccaneers announced Tuesday that Gage (concussion/neck) remained overnight for additional testing at a local hospital following Monday's loss to the Cowboys, and that he has regained movement in all his extremities.

    Tampa Bay's statement notes that Gage will undergo additional testing Tuesday. The wideout had to be carted off the field during Monday's wild-card playoff loss against Dallas due to a neck injury and concussion. The Buccaneers will provide further updates about the 26-year-old's health as more information becomes available.

  • Buccaneers' Russell Gage: Suffers concussion Monday

    Buccaneers coach Todd Bowles said postgame that Gage sustained a concussion during Monday's wild-card loss to Dallas, and he was taken to a local hospital to be evaluated for an additional neck injury, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    Gage had to be carted off the field after sustaining this injury late in the fourth quarter, as he was down on the field for some time following a hit from behind to his head and neck. Bowles added that the 26-year-old had movement in his extremities before being transported to the hospital, per Smith. This subsequent medical examination should provide more clarity on the nature and extent of this potential neck injury as well.

  • Buccaneers' Russell Gage: Carted off late in wild-card loss

    Gage was loaded onto a backboard and carted off the field after sustaining an undisclosed injury in the fourth quarter of Monday's 31-14 playoff defeat versus the Cowboys, Greg Auman of Fox Sports reports.

    Gage sustained a blow from behind to the head and neck area while attempting to catch an incomplete pass late in the fourth quarter. The exact nature of this injury still is unclear, though the 26-year-old was unable to get up and had to be tended to on the field for an extended period before being carted off, according to Brianna Dix of the Buccaneers' official site.

  • Buccaneers' Russell Gage: Finds end zone in finale

    Gage secured three of six targets for 15 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 30-17 loss to the Falcons on Sunday.

    Gage recorded a three-yard touchdown grab in conjunction with Blaine Gabbert late in the second quarter, which served as the highlight of his abbreviated workday. With Julio Jones (knee) inactive and seemingly a 50/50 proposition to play each week, Gage could be in for an elevated role in next weekend's home wild-card matchup after finishing the regular season with a surge that saw him tally four of his five scores in the last five games.

  • Buccaneers' Russell Gage: Modest production in win

    Gage caught all three of his targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 30-24 win over the Panthers.

    Gage operated as the Buccaneers' No. 3 receiver Sunday, playing 42 of the team's 78 offensive snaps. The 26-year-old has maintained a solid snap share on offense even with Julio Jones active for the past two games. Tampa Bay continues to limit Jones' snaps as he recovers from a knee injury that sidelined him in Week 15. Gage will look to stay involved in a Week 18 matchup against the Falcons, though his opportunities may be limited behind fellow wideouts Mike Evans and Chris Godwin.

  • Buccaneers' Russell Gage: Should still enjoy solid role

    Gage should retain a solid snap share in Sunday's Week 17 divisional battle against the Panthers despite the fact fellow wideout Julio Jones (knee) is active for the contest, per Scott Smith of the team's official site.

    Jones once again was handled with care throughout the practice week due to his lingering knee issues, and although he'll suit up versus Carolina, a similar scenario to last Sunday night's overtime win against the Cardinals could unfold. In that contest, Jones played just 19 snaps to Gage's 43, with the latter producing a 5-65 line on six targets. Given Gage also proved highly valuable with eight receptions, including a pair of touchdowns, in a Week 15 loss to the Bengals that Jones was sidelined for, he could certainly play much more of a co-No. 3 receiver role once again versus the Panthers.

  • Buccaneers' Russell Gage: Strong contributions again Sunday

    Gage brought in five of six targets for 65 yards in the Buccaneers' 19-16 overtime win over the Cardinals on Sunday night.

    Gage put together another strong performance despite Julio Jones garnering active status after missing the Week 15 loss to the Bengals with a knee injury. Gage's yardage total checked in second on the night for the Bucs, and he made critical 23- and 13-yard grabs on the game-winning drive in overtime despite appearing to hurt his leg on each catch. The veteran wideout's 18 targets over the last pair of contests is certainly encouraging after he played a minimal role for weeks, and it remains to be seen if Tom Brady will lean heavily on him again in a pivotal Week 17 home divisional clash against the Panthers.
