Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Russell Gage is the latest NFL player to be rushed to hospital after being hit across his neck.

The injury came just two weeks after Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin suffered an on-field cardiac arrest during “Monday Night Football.”

Gage was injured after trying to catch a pass from Tom Brady in the fourth quarter during a playoff game at Raymond James Stadium.

Cowboys safety Donovan Wilson’s arm struck Gage’s neck as he stumbled to the ground.

“Just a frightening sight, watching Russell Gage try to get up and not being able to,” announcer Joe Buck.

Tampa Bay coach Todd Bowles gave an update on the 26-year-old receiver:

“They took him to the hospital. Right now, he has a concussion. They’re also testing him for potential neck injuries,” Bowles said.

“His fingers were moving when he was down there. I don’t know about the rest,” Bowles said.

Gage tried lifting his head after the hit but couldn’t as he twisted on the field.

Gage spent four years with the Atlanta Falcons before signing a deal with Tampa Bay this season.

“It was really tough — especially with what happened a couple weeks ago,” Bucs inside linebacker Lavonte David said after the game, according to ESPN.

“Russ is a great dude off the field and a great guy on the field. We definitely hope he’s well. He was moving and stuff like that; that was a good sign. Definitely hope he’s OK.”

Tampa Bay tight end Cam Brate elaborated in his teammate’s injury.

“You hate to see a guy go down like that, especially with the game being kind of out of reach at that point. It’s really hard to see your teammate like that. We’re all thinking about Russ and hope he’s doing well. Yeah, it’s tough,” he said.
