Markov has taken hits that weren't as bad and gotten injured, though he fell more awkwardly.
I would say Gorges can take a hit better but we saw the way he fell. It was sketchy to say the least. Glad he was back the same game cause it shows he was definitely 100%, they wouldn't risk bringing him back into a preseason game if there was a risk.
This is the most reasonable interpretation. There's nothing at stake in the game, and if he was injured i think he'd stay out. There's a difference between experiencing pain because you fell awkwardly and being injured from the awkward fall.
