Bucs WR Julio Jones (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Steelers. Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Russell Gage will be Tampa’s clear top 3 WRs.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (ankle) is not listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He went from no practice on Wednesday to a limited practice on Thursday to a full practice on Friday. That was actually his first full practice of the entire season. So Gage looks relatively healthy heading into a plus matchup vs. the Steelers’ 32nd-ranked WR defense.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. We'll see if he's able to play vs. the Steelers this weekend, but he's tough to like in fantasy lineups at less than 100%.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. It's a new injury for Gage, who has previously dealt with hamstring and back issues. We'll track his status over the next couple of days, leading up to Sunday's game vs. the Steelers.

Buccaneers QB Tom Brady attempted 52 passes for the 2nd straight game in Sunday's win over the Falcons. He completed 35 (67.3%) for 351 yards (6.75 yards per attempt) and 1 TD. Brady targeted RB Leonard Fournette most, throwing his way on 21.2% of pass attempts (11 targets) -- including his only TD toss. WR Mike Evans ranked 2nd with 8 targets, catching 4 for 81 yards. TE Cade Otton (6-43) and WR Scotty Miller (4-35) tied with 7 targets. WR Chris Godwin (6-61) and WR Russell Gage (2-20) each drew 6 looks. The Bucs now rank 4th in the league in pass attempts and have run on just 33% of offensive snaps for the season to date.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (back) is active for today’s game vs. the Falcons. He was added to the injury report on Saturday and listed as questionable, so he carries elevated risk as a Week 5 fantasy play. But, with Julio Jones out, Gage should be locked in as Tampa’s #3 WR as long as that back cooperates.

ESPN's Jeff Darlington reports that Bucs WR Julio Jones (knee) will not play vs. the Falcons today. Darlington also confirms that WR Russell Gage (back) will play. Jones' absence locks Gage in as Tampa's #3 WR behind Mike Evans and Chris Godwin.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (back) is expected to play vs. the Falcons today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Gage was added to the injury report on Saturday and is listed as questionable. There have been no other updates on his situation, so he carries elevated risk in Week 5 fantasy lineups.

The Buccaneers on Saturday added WR Russell Gage to the final injury report as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Gage has been questionable for every game this season. It had been a hamstring issue for the previous 4. This time he's listed with a back injury after 3 days of limited practice. We'll see about Gage's status Sunday morning. He comes with a low ceiling anyway, though, now that the whole corps is intact.

Bucs WRs Russell Gage (hamstring), Chris Godwin (hamstring) and WR Julio Jones (knee) are active for tonight’s game vs. the Chiefs. They all figure to be operating at less than 100% – and it’s unclear exactly how snaps will be divvied behind WR Mike Evans. We’d try to avoid the 3 of them if possible, but Gage sits highest in the Week 4 WR Rankings. WR Breshad Perriman is inactive with his knee and hamstring injuries, while WR Scott Miller is a healthy scratch.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that the Bucs are "optimistic" that WRs Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Julio Jones (knee) will be able to play vs. the Chiefs tonight. "But Tampa Bay wants to test both pregame to make sure," Schefter adds. We won't get the Bucs' inactives until around 7 pm ET, and Godwin and Jones will both carry elevated risk if they are active. So we'd try to keep them on fantasy benches this week. This news makes WR Russell Gage a shakier Week 4 fantasy play but helps QB Tom Brady.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game vs. the Chiefs. He got in limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday before sitting out on Friday -- the same routine he went through before playing last weekend. Gage should be available come Sunday night.

Bucs QB Tom Brady finished Week 3 with 271 yards and 1 TD on 31 of 42 passing. Playing without Chris Godwin (hamstring), Mike Evans (suspension) or Julio Jones (knee), Brady watched WRs Breshad Perriman and Russell Gage lose fumbles. Gage did score the team’s lone TD late in the 4th, but the 2-point conversion — to send the game into OT — was unsuccessful. Considering the WR injuries and the banged up O-line, Brady’s performance was actually encouraging. Evans will return for Week 4 (vs. Kansas City) but Jones and Godwin remain uncertain.

Playing through a tweaked hamstring, Bucs WR Russell Gage recorded 12 catches, 87 yards and 1 score. The veteran entered Sunday as questionable on the injury report with a hamstring. Tampa Bay, of course, played without Chris Godwin (hamstring), Mike Evans (suspension) and Julio Jones (knee), but it’s still impressive that Gage garnered a 31% target share. Cameron Brate and Leonard Fournette were closest at 15% apiece. Look past Gage’s 3rd-quarter fumble, and this outing couldn't have gone much better. We'll see on the Bucs’ injury situation, but Week 4 turns up an intriguing home matchup with Kansas City.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Packers. He got in just 2 limited practices this week, so it’s safe to assume he’s not at 100%. But the Bucs need him with WRs Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Julio Jones out. Gage is in the WR3 mix for Week 3. WR Breshad Perriman is also active for Tampa.

Bucs WRs Russell Gage (hamstring) and Breshad Perriman (knee) are expected to play vs. the Packers today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Gage didn't practice on Friday after limited workouts on Wednesday and Thursday, but it looks like that was a planned day off. Perriman got in 3 limited practices after playing through this knee issue last week.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Packers. He was limited on Wednesday and Thursday but didn’t practice on Friday. It’s unclear if that was a setback or a planned day off. We’ll look for further updates on Gage ahead of Sunday’s 4:25 pm ET kickoff.

Bucs WRs Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Julio Jones (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. Jones seemingly has a better chance than Godwin to play vs. the Packers this weekend. But, with WR Mike Evans suspended, Tampa could be down to WRs Russell Gage, Breshad Perriman and Scotty Miller atop the depth chart.
