Buffalo Bills cornerback Dane Jackson was transported to Erie County Medical Center on Monday night after suffering a neck injury during a collision with teammate Tremaine Edmunds.
The play came near the end of the first half in the game between the Bills and the Tennessee Titans. During the play, Jackson was in coverage on rookie wide receiver Treylon Burks, as the receiver ran a route breaking back towards the quarterback. As the throw came towards Burks, Jackson drives towards the catch point to break up the throw. As the pass falls incomplete, Edmunds breaks on the throw as well, and collides with Jackson:
Following the collision, the entire Bills team surrounded their teammate as medical personnel responded to his injury. An ambulance came onto the field for Jackson, and the defensive back was placed on a backboard with his neck immobilized:
According to Maddy Glab, who covers the Bills for the team’s media department, Jackson was seen moving his legs after the hit:
The Bills released a brief update on social media, indicating that Jackson was taken to Erie County Medical Center to undergo testing and evaluation for a “neck injury.” The statement also indicated that Jackson had “full movement” in his extremities:
CB Dane Jackson has been taken to ECMC for evaluation of a neck injury. He will be getting a CT scan and an x-ray. Jackson has full movement in extremities.
