EARLIER: Just prior to halftime during Monday night’s game between the Buffalo Bills and Tennessee Titans, a collision between a pair of teammates led to one member of Buffalo’s secondary getting put onto a stretcher and into an ambulance. Bills cornerback Dane Jackson was manning up Titans receiver Treylon Burks, who ran a curl route and was immediately taken down.
While Jackson was taking him down and both he and Burks were on the ground, Buffalo linebacker Tremaine Edmunds came flying in to try and get a little extra contact against the Tennessee pass catcher. Instead, Edmunds made contact with Jackson’s upper body and caused him to bend backwards at an awkward angle — we won’t embed the video in the post, but here is a link
Almost immediately, medical personnel came out to tend to Jackson while his teammates appeared to be visibly shaken up. Eventually, an ambulance was brought onto the field, and while he was surrounded by his teammates, Jackson was put on a stretcher and taken off the field.
Dane Jackson has been placed on a backboard and gurney with his neck immobilized. Crowd applauding as he is loaded into the ambulance.
