Bills CB Dane Jackson exits in ambulance vs. Titans, being evaluated for neck injury


Recommended Posts

A raucous Buffalo crowd turned quiet during a scary moment Monday night that saw Buffalo Bills cornerback Dane Jackson leave the field in an ambulance. Jackson went down late in the first half of his team’s game against the Tennessee Titans after taking an accidental hit to the head from teammate Tremaine Edmunds.

The Bills announced Jackson is being evaluated at a local hospital for a neck injury, where he will get a CT scan and an X-ray, and said he has full movement in his extremities.

After going down, medical personnel unscrewed Jackson’s facemask off his helmet, put him on a stretcher and loaded him into the ambulance. The third-year player received a big round of applause as the ambulance slowly exited the field.

Jackson was starting in his second game this season after dealing with a knee injury in practice earlier this week. He was selected by Buffalo in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft and had recorded nine starts across three seasons with the franchise.

The Bills led the game 17-7 at the time of the injury, but dominated Tennessee in the second half to secure a 41-7 blowout victory.

Bills coach Sean McDermott told reporters after the game that the team had no further updates.

“Dane Jackson has full movement in his extremities, which is good, but we are still awaiting more updates,” McDermott said. “I was able to see him in the ambulance at halftime and we are all sending our prayers to him.”

“There he goes. One of God's own prototypes.

A high-powered mutant of some kind, never even considered for mass production.

Too weird to live, and too rare to die.”
