Buffalo cornerback Dane Jackson was removed from the field by an ambulance due to neck injury during the second quarter of the Bills’ Monday night game against the Tennessee Titans in Orchard Park, N.Y.

The team announced that Jackson was taken to ECMC Hospital and had full movement in his extremities. He was due to undergo X-rays and a CT scan, per the Bills.

Tennessee’s Ryan Tannehill completed a 12-yard pass to Treylon Burks and Jackson made the tackle. But Buffalo linebacker Tremaine Edmunds was advancing toward the pair and he went over Burks and inadvertently crashed into Jackson, whose head and neck were violently driven backward.

Jackson fell to the turf and was worked on by trainers and the ambulance was summoned with 45 seconds left in the half.

Jackson (knee) was listed as questionable for the game before being cleared to play. The 25-year-old is in his third NFL season, all with the Bills.
