Jackson to undergo testing but has full movement in extremities
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:
