The Cowboys embarrassed the Buccaneers in the highly awaited Wild Card match. However, the Buccaneers team was more concerned about another incident in the game. During the match, Russell Gage, the wide receiver, was taken to the hospital as he was injured in the head and neck area.
In the match’s final quarter, the Buccaneers scored eight points, which was a point more than the Cowboys’ seven points. Even though the team knew they were losing the math, they gave it their all, and in the process, Gage collided with Donovan Wilson leading to his concussion and neck injury.
The accident occurred with minutes remaining in the game; the team with Russell’s injury did not care much about the loss but wanted their teammate to be healthy.
The Buccaneers, after the match, tweeted about the wide receiver, letting fans know about his condition. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers wrote in their tweet-
“Russell has had movement in all extremities and will continue to undergo additional testing today. We will provide additional information as it becomes available.”
