  • Buccaneers' Russell Gage: Active as expected Sunday

    Gage (hamstring) is active for Sunday's Week 3 game against the Packers, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    Gage missed Friday's practice but was reportedly expected to be available, and it's now confirmed he'll play through his hamstring issue for the third time in as many games to open the season. Gage's presence will be especially critical Sunday considering the absence of Mike Evans (suspension), Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Julio Jones (knee).

  • Buccaneers' Russell Gage: Sets career high

    Gage caught 12 of 13 targets for 87 yards and a touchdown but lost a fumble in Sunday's 14-12 loss to the Packers.

    Gage led the Buccaneers in all major receiving categories, taking advantage of Mike Evans (suspension), Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Julio Jones (knee) all being sidelined. His one-yard touchdown with 14 seconds left put Tampa Bay on the brink of overtime, yet Gage hurt the team's momentum with a fumble earlier in the game. Overall, though, he still posted a career high in receptions, which could help his chances of remaining involved even if Godwin and/or Jones are able to return alongside Evans in Week 4 versus the Chiefs.

  • Buccaneers' Russell Gage: Expected to suit up Sunday

    Gage (hamstring) is expected play Sunday versus the Packers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Gage looks set to play through his hamstring injury for a third straight week after having again been listed as questionable. With Mike Evans (suspension) and Chris Godwin (hamstring) unavailable Sunday, plus Julio Jones (knee) being a true game-time decision, Gage could be in line for expanded opportunities versus the Packers' stout secondary. Breshad Perriman (knee) is also expected to play Sunday.

  • Buccaneers' Russell Gage: Deemed questionable again

    Gage (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Green Bay, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    Gage is listed as questionable for a third straight week and likely will suit up for a third straight game. It is possible the injury has affected his workload and/or performance, however, with Gage sitting on 41 yards through two games and rarely leaving the slot. He could see more looks this week with both Mike Evans (suspension) and Chris Godwin (hamstring) ruled out and Julio Jones (knee) headed for a game-time decision. Cautious fantasy managers also will want to make sure Gage isn't a surprise inclusion on the inactive list ahead of the 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff this Sunday.

  • Buccaneers' Russell Gage: Another limited session

    Gage (hamstring) practiced on a limited basis Thursday.

    Both Gage and Breshad Perriman (knee) had their reps capped Thursday, while Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Julio Jones (knee) didn't practice again, and Scotty Miller (calf) jumped from limited Wednesday to all activity one day later. The Buccaneers will be without Mike Evans in Week 3 versus the Packers due to a one-game suspension, and if Godwin and/or Jones also sit out, Gage would be in line for a significant target share this weekend. But that's assuming Gage ditches his designation ahead of Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff.

  • Buccaneers' Russell Gage: Limited with hamstring injury

    Gage (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Wednesday.

    Gage likely will play through the hamstring injury for a third straight week this Sunday against Green Bay, but it may be affecting his workload, with the Buccaneers deploying him as their No. 3 receiver even as they've been without other wideouts due to injuries through the first two games. Mike Evans is suspended this week and won't play Sunday, while Julio Jones (knee) and Chris Godwin (hamstring) both missed practice Wednesday and could miss their second straight game.

  • Buccaneers' Russell Gage: Team-leading catch total in win

    Gage (hamstring) secured five of six targets for 28 yards in the Buccaneers' 20-10 win over the Saints on Sunday.

    Gage was able to play through his hamstring issues for a second straight week to open the season, finishing with a team-high number of catches in a game in which the Buccaneers were down both Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Julio Jones (knee), and during which Mike Evans was ejected early in the fourth quarter. Gage has been even more of a short-area target over his first two games in Tampa Bay than he was in Atlanta, and he may have an uphill battle to rack up yardage against a tough Packers secondary Week 3 next Sunday.

  • Buccaneers' Russell Gage: Suiting up Week 2

    Gage (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game in New Orleans.

    Gage missed the Buccaneers' first practice of the week Wednesday and was limited Thursday and Friday, but the hamstring issue evidently isn't severe enough to keep him out for Week 2. With Chris Godwin's own hamstring injury set to keep him on the sideline this weekend, Gage projects to serve as the primary replacement in the slot. Meanwhile, Julio Jones (knee) is also inactive and Mike Evans (calf) is suiting up but is likely to draw coverage from the Saints' top corner, Marshon Lattimore, so Gage could have some sneaky fantasy value this week as a key underneath target for quarterback Tom Brady.
