Buffalo Bills starting cornerback Dane Jackson was sent for hospital evaluation for a possible neck injury following a collision with a teammate during his side’s 41-7 win over the Tennessee Titans. The team later announced that Jackson underwent a CT scan and an X-ray at Erie County Medical Center.
According to coach Sean McDermott, the severity of the cornerback’s injury remains uncertain as the player still awaits his results. “Still awaiting word and obviously praying for Dane and all of [the Bills’ injured players].You go from the real part of it here; you go from being a coach to just being a human when I’m out there watching him getting loaded into the ambulance. That’s a real moment.”
The game was halted for almost 10 minutes after Jackson’s collision, with the player managing to move his legs slightly while the rest of his body remained stationary as the Bills’ medical team poured onto the field to assist the injured star.
Jackson’s teammates surrounded him to shield him from onlookers as the medical team loaded him onto a stretcher and loaded him into an ambulance. McDermott revealed that he was able to speak with Jackson briefly before the player was transported to the hospital.
