We break down news that Gage has a hamstring injury. What it means for Week 3 and beyond.
Thursday update: Gage seems fine in practice, so it looks like he’ll be ready for the team’s Week 3 contest against the Packers. The official practice report might still list him as limited, but managers can assume the receiver will be in for Sunday’s contest.
Donovan Smith is practicing today with a brace on his right elbow. Didn’t see Chris Godwin or Julio Jones at practice. Other players listed on injured report (Davis, Hainsey, Fournette, Miller, Gage, Perriman, McCollum) all seem fine.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could be without their top two receivers in Week 3 against the Green Bay Packers, which opens up a lot of opportunities for players like Russell Gage. The offseason pickup was limited Wednesday with a hamstring injury ahead of Week 3.
Gage was limited last week as well before suiting up against the New Orleans Saints. He caught five passes for 28 yards, so Tom Brady was looking his way a decent amount. The Buccaneers are likely to be without Chris Godwin once again and Mike Evans is suspended, so Gage has a big chance to deliver a huge outing. Look for Breshad Perriman and Scotty Miller to also be heavily involved in the passing game.
For now, Gage’s limited session doesn’t appear to be concerning. If he does take a downturn during the week, that likely means even more work for Perriman, Miller and Leonard Fournette.
