Buffalo defensive back Dane Jackson exited Monday night’s Bills-Titans matchup in an ambulance, but all signs point to avoiding major injury.
In the second quarter of the “Monday Night Football” matchup between the Titans and Bills, Jackson took a hit from teammate Tremaine Edmunds, which bent his head and neck backwards at a very gruesome angle.
Jackson would lay on the ground for several minutes before being loaded into an ambulance on the field in Buffalo.
Jackson was seen moving his arms and legs following the hit, which turned out to be a potentially good sign. ESPN sideline reporters didn’t have an immediate update on Jackson as he exited the game, but on Tuesday, more good news emerged.
Here’s the latest on Jackson and his injury:
