Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver Russell Gage left Monday’s playoff recreation towards the Dallas Cowboys on a backboard after a daunting damage late within the recreation.
Cowboys security Donovan Wilson made contact with Gage’s head after an incomplete go late within the fourth quarter. Gage fell to his rear after the go, and Wilson hit him from behind, snapping Gage’s head ahead. Wilson wasn’t concentrating on Gage’s head. He was already dedicated to the sort out when Gage fell.
Gage appeared to attempt to rise up from the hit, however could not. He remained laying on his again. Players from each groups surrounded as medical trainers tended to Gage. After a number of moments, trainers positioned Gage on a backboard and finally lifted him onto a cart, the place he was taken off the sphere.
Gage was initially listed as questionable previous to Monday’s recreation after he injured his again on a landing catch in Week 18. His standing after Monday’s hit wasn’t initially clear.
