NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee receiver Justin Gage has
several broken transverse bones in his lower back, and he is
unlikely to play Sunday against Buffalo.

The receiver was injured when he fell to the ground after making
a leaping catch to set up the go-ahead touchdown in last week's
34-27 win at San Francisco.

Gage started hurting once the adrenaline wore off and the Titans ran a variety of X-rays and CAT scans.

Coach Jeff Fisher said Thursday the tests revealed the multiple
fractures. The injury does not involve any structure crucial to the
spine, and Gage said Wednesday he has had no problem moving his hands and feet.

Fisher did not rule Gage out, but says it's unlikely he will play this week.
