Going into year one without Tom Brady is off to a terrible start for the Tampa Bay Bucs and it just got even worse.
Tampa Bay Bucs WR Russell Gage was carted off the practice field Wednesday due to a non-contact injury, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Gage missed some time due to a lower leg issue earlier in training camp, and it now seems as though he may have suffered a more severe injury that could put his season in jeopardy.
The Buccaneers have yet to disclose an official update on Gage’s status, but non-contact injuries aren’t often minor and potentially season-ending.
The 27-year-old caught 51 passes for 426 yards with five touchdowns for the Buccaneers last year. Aside from Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, he is one of the few experienced receivers on Tampa Bay’s roster.
A sixth-round pick in the 2018 draft, Gage spent his first four seasons with the Falcons. He has 244 career receptions for 2,491 yards with 14 TDs.
Prayers up that this injury will turn out to be just fine and he will only have to miss minimal time.
