NFL-Bills cornerback Jackson released from hospital with 'no major injury'

The incident prompted a nearly 10-minute delay in the game while Jackson, a seventh-round pick of the Bills in the 2020 NFL Draft, was placed on a stretcher and loaded into an ambulance as his team mates gathered around. Jackson, who had full movement of his extremities as he was taken to hospital, will undergo further evaluation on Tuesday, the Bills said.

Buffalo Bills cornerback Dane Jackson has been released from hospital as tests determined there was "no major injury" to his neck or spinal cord after a brutal collision with a team mate, the NFL team said on Tuesday. Jackson was taken off the field in an ambulance and brought to hospital for evaluation of a neck injury after an inadvertent collision with a team mate late in the first half of the Bills' Monday night romp of the visiting Tennessee Titans.

The 25-year-old Jackson tackled a Tennessee receiver moments before Tremaine Edmunds dove in and collided with his team mate, whose head and neck bent backward on impact. The incident prompted a nearly 10-minute delay in the game while Jackson, a seventh-round pick of the Bills in the 2020 NFL Draft, was placed on a stretcher and loaded into an ambulance as his team mates gathered around.

Jackson, who had full movement of his extremities as he was taken to hospital, will undergo further evaluation on Tuesday, the Bills said.
