Former LSU wide receiver Russell Gage suffered a serious injury in the Monday Night playoff game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Dallas Cowboys while attempting to catch a pass from the quarterback Tom Brady.

Gage took a hard shot to the neck and was unable to get up under his own power. He was eventually taken off the field by stretcher and went to a local hospital for evaluation.

The Bucs released the following update on Gage's injury Tuesday at 9:45 am CT.


After suffering a neck injury and concussion during the fourth quarter of last night's game, Russell was taken to a local hospital where he remained overnight for additional testing and observation. Russell has had movement in all extremities and will continue to undergo additional testing today.

We will provide additional information as it becomes available.

are you 12 years old? Gage has only been gone 5 years - you honestly don't remember him? And you don't "walk on" to a pro team.

He is not a former LSU wide receiver. He was on LSU's track team and walked on for the Bucs.

That was Cyril Grayson. Gage was on the football team. Gage came in as a DB and then switched to WR his last two seasons.

That was scary when that neck went 90 degrees. When they showed his leg I was just hoping that wasn't some kind of seizure going on.

Apparently not...great news.

I think he was just in pain tbh and that is why he was moving around so much.
