During last Monday night’s wild-card round game between the Cowboys and Buccaneers, he revived the fear of the players and the nervousness of the fans; as well as NFL officials when receiver Russell Gage didn’t get off the field.
The last minutes of the final quarter of the wild card game were played where the Bucs tried to get closer on the scoreboard, Tom Brady threw a pass to Russell Gage that was incomplete due to the presence of the Dallas defensive back and the blow did not look strong at the time of the play; however, in the television show it was noticeable that Gage tried to get up on a couple of occasions and his body did not respond completely.
