Bills CB Dane Jackson released from hospital after injury vs. Titans

Buffalo Bills cornerback Dane Jackson, who prompted a somber scene due to an injury he sustained in a Week 2 win over the Tennessee Titans, was released from a Buffalo, N.Y., hospital, the Bills announced Tuesday.

Jackson sustained a neck injury when he collided with teammate Tremaine Edmunds in the third quarter of the Bills' 41-7 victory Monday in Orchard Park, N.Y.

An ambulance that came onto the field took Jackson to Erie County Medical Center, where he received a CT scan and X-ray and spent the night.

The Bills said Tuesday that those tests determined "there was no major injury to his neck or spinal cord." Jackson will undergo further evaluation Tuesday afternoon.

"You go from a coach, to just being a human, when you watch him get loaded into the ambulance," Bills coach Sean McDermott told reporters Monday. "That was a real moment. We are just praying for him. It was an unfortunate situation."

Jackson, 25, was a seventh-round pick by the Bills in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft. The former Pittsburgh defender logged three combined tackles and a pass defensed Monday in Orchard Park.
