After the Falcons traded Mohamed Sanu to the Patriots, it was next man up for the Falcons, and that next man is Russell Gage.

Gage, who first slid into that role in the game before the bye week against the Seahawks, performed pretty well in his first real action with 7 catches for 58 yards.

"I prepare every week as If I'm the starter. I understand my time on offense will increase and I'm expected to contribute more and I'm going to do whatever I can to help this team."

Gage also discussed his performance against the Seahawks and graded himself.
