Russell Gage, WR (TB)

Team-leading catch total in win

Gage (hamstring) secured five of six targets for 28 yards in the Buccaneers' 20-10 win over the Saints on Sunday.

Gage was able to play through his hamstring issues for a second straight week to open the season, finishing with a team-high number of catches in a game in which the Buccaneers were down both Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Julio Jones (knee), and during which Mike Evans was ejected early in the fourth quarter. Gage has been even more of a short-area target over his first two games in Tampa Bay than he was in Atlanta, and he may have an uphill battle to rack up yardage against a tough Packers secondary Week 3 next Sunday.

Quick study in Bucs offense

Beasley, who signed with the Buccaneers' practice squad earlier this week and was elevated to the active roster Saturday, has quickly picked up the team's playbook, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. "He's quick, catches up to speed [really] fast, he understands the system," head coach Todd Bowles said Friday. "He's played and he's got a lot of reps under him, so if we needed him, I think he'll be ready."
