Gage hasn't practiced since breaking the transverse process bones in his back during a Nov. 8 game at San Francisco. Rookie Kenny Britt will make his second consecutive start in Gage's place.
Starting linebacker David Thornton (hip) and defensive tackle Jason Jones (shoulder) were limited Saturday, and Fisher said both players will be questionable for the game.
Safety Kevin Kaesviharn missed practice for a personal matter, and Fisher is hoping the veteran will play in the game.
