Friday update: Gage is officially out, which we knew since he isn’t in Germany!

Thursday PM update: Russell Gage is not traveling with the team to London, per Ian Rapoport. This means he will be ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks when the final injury report is released on Friday and appear on game-day inactive report.

Thursday update: Gage was once again a non participant on Thursday. He appears likely to sit out again this week.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Russell Gage did not take the practice field Wednesday as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury. Gage has not had a big season with the Bucs and is now dealing with what seems to be a nagging issue. He’s missed the team’s last two contests with this injury.

Fantasy football implications for Week 10

This obviously isn’t a great start for Gage in terms of coming back to the field but the Bucs are likely taking notes on some other major hamstring injuries around the league. The recovery time here has varied significantly and it seems like all these guys are having setbacks with their injuries. The last thing the Bucs need is for Gage to aggravate the issue.

If Gage were to continue to miss games, slot receiver Scotty Miller likely emerges as a viable fantasy play in PPR formats.
