3rd quarter update: The Falcons announced Gage is OUT for the rest of the game.

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Russell Gage was slow to get up in the end zone and is now being evaluated for a concussion. The team announced he is questionable to return. Gage had two receptions for 26 yards when he left the game.

With Julio Jones out, Gage was needed to step up, but for the moment, they will need Christian Blake and Olamide Zaccheaus to compliment Calvin Ridley in the passing game.
