Shortly after the incident, the Bills confirmed Jackson had full movement in his limbs and was getting a CT scan and an X-ray. 

Jackson was hurt on a second-down play with 0:45 left in the first half against the Tennessee Titans after tackling receiver Treylon Burks from behind.

Coach Sean McDermott gave an update on Jackson following the Monday night game, he said: ‘Dane Jackson has full movement in his extremities, which is good, but we are still awaiting more updates.¬†

‘I was able to see him in the ambulance at halftime and we are all sending our prayers to him.’

Safety Damar Hamlin added: ‘Dane is my brother, so being in that moment and seeing something like that, it’s a deep hit.

‘We go way back. Even Rashad Weaver on the other sideline, he went to Pitt with us. He probably felt something like that, too. I’m hoping for the best. I’m praying for the best. I know he’ll be OK if he told me he’s OK.’

As Jackson lay on Burks’ back, linebacker Tremaine Edmunds dived in late and struck his teammate directly in the helmet as Jackson’s neck and head were sickeningly bent backward.¬†

The Bills player’s head was pushed by Titans running back, Hassan Haskins, as he attempted to move Jackson out of the way of his teammate.¬†

The collision was scary for all watching but Buffalo have since reported he had 'full movement in extremities' shortly after and is now undergoing a CT-scan and X-rays at a local hospital
