Russell Gage suffered a helmet to helmet hit from Jamal Adams on the final drive of the first half and has been admitted to the medical tent for evaluation on what we presume is a head injury.
Unfortunately, he’s questionable to return after the hit from Jamal Adams.
#Falcons WR Russell Gage is being evaluated for a head injury, his return to the game is questionable.— Kelsey Conway (@FalconsKelsey) September 13, 2020
The play occurred after a 10-yard reception by Gage which put the Falcons into field goal range. Following a run after the catch, Adams lowered his helmet and made contact with Gage’s helmet to initiate the injury.

#Falcons WR Russell Gage taken into the medical tent. Believe the medical timeout was for him after a hit to the head.— Justin Felder (@Justin_FOX5) September 13, 2020
Gage led the team with five receptions and had 54 receiving yards — second only to Calvin Ridley’s 56 yards — at that point. Younghoe Koo converted the subsequent field goal to make the score 14-12 going into the half.
If Gage were to miss the remainder of the game, Olamide Zaccheaus and Christian Blake would presumably see more snaps on offense.
