After hauling in a quick third down pass from Matt Ryan in the red zone, Gage took what appeared to be a rough shot to the upper body or head area. He was slow to get up, but was able to walk off the field and head into the injury tent to be checked out.
Russell Gage also took a nasty shot to the head courtesy of Jamal Adams in Atlanta’s Week 1 game against Seattle.
We’re hoping that Gage is able to return, but it’s clearly not good news that he has headed to the locker room. We’ll keep you posted on his status as we receive updates.
Update: Per ESPN’s Vaughn McClure, Gage has been ruled out for the remainder of the game against the Chicago Bears.
