Buccaneers’ WR Gage Misses OTAs, Nursing Injury


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made several moves this offseason to make a run at another Lombardi Trophy. One of the more significant of those moves was the signing of wide receiver Russell Gage.

Gage is a former sixth-round pick from LSU in the 2018 NFL Draft. Gage has been reliable during his 61 games with the Atlanta Falcons. During that time Gage posted 2,065 yards with nine touchdowns on 193 catches.

Gage was brought in as a WR3 and to fill the void during Chris Godwin‘s recovery from an ACL injury. Regrettably, it appears as though Gage is nursing an injury himself.

Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles was asked about Gage and his status.

“Well, he’s a little sore right now, so we’re resting him,” Bowles stated. “We don’t need to play him right now. So, when he’s here, he’s getting his treatment and everything. It shouldn’t be anything serious for training camp.”

It doesn’t sound like Gage’s injury is serious, that said it’s definitely worth keeping tabs on.
