The incident occurred with just three minutes remaining in the game, as Gage attempted to catch a pass from quarterback Tom Brady. He was tackled by Cowboys safety Donovan Wilson and fell to the ground, leading to the injury.

In a press conference following the game, Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles confirmed that Gage had suffered a concussion and was taken to a local hospital in Tampa for evaluation on possible neck injuries. Bowles also noted that Gage was able to move his fingers while on the ground, which is a positive sign for his recovery.

Medical staff quickly rushed to the field to assist the star before he was carted off and taken to the hospital. The injury was a significant loss for the Buccaneers, as Gage had been a key player for the team this season. The injury was also a source of concern for many fans of the NFL, who shared messages of love and support for the player on social media.

Russell Gage, who was born on January 22, 1996 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, gained popularity while playing college football at Louisiana State University between 2014 and 2017. He played as a defensive player during his first two seasons, before switching to offense. Gage was then drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, where he spent four years.

In March 2022, Gage signed a three-year, $30 million contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, joining a team that had made it to the Super Bowl the previous season. Gage's injury is a setback for the Buccaneers, who are currently fighting for a spot in the playoffs. The team's medical staff will be closely monitoring Gage's condition and will provide updates on his recovery as they become available.

Injuries can be a major setback for any NFL team, and the Buccaneers will be hoping that Gage's injury is not too serious and that he will be able to return to the field as soon as possible. The team has several talented wide receivers on their roster, but Gage's speed and playmaking ability will be difficult to replace. Fans of the Buccaneers and the NFL will be keeping a close eye on Gage's recovery, as they hope to see him back on the field soon.
