  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Another seven-tackle outing

    Jackson notched seven tackles (five solo) and one pass breakup during Sunday's 31-14 win over the Panthers.

    Jackson was briefly forced out of Week 15's win due to a neck injury, but he managed to retake the field. The cornerback has back-to-back seven-tackle games under his belt, and he's played 100 percent of snaps since Tre'Davious White (knee) went down Week 12, making him a viable fantasy candidate Week 16 in New England.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Returns to action

    Jackson (neck) has returned to Sunday's game against Carolina, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

    Jackson suffered a stinger early in the first quarter but missed minimal time. He's been a key member of Buffalo's secondary since Tre'Davious White (knee) went down in Week 12, playing 100 percent of the team's defensive snaps.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Suffers early injury

    Jackson (neck) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against Carolina after suffering a stinger.

    Jackson has been on the field for 100 percent of defensive snaps since Tre'Davious White went down with a torn ACL in Week 12. His absence would further deplete Buffalo's secondary, with Siran Neal a candidate to see increased playing time while Jackson remains sidelined.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Big opportunity ahead

    Jackson is expected to see increased action in the wake of Tre'Davious White's season-ending knee injury, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports. "I think Dane Jackson is one of those guys who will step up," defensive coordinator Frazier said this week. "He's the next man up and he'll do a good job for us. But to say that he will play at the level of Tre'Davious, that would be misleading for sure."

    Jackson saw a season-high 63 percent of the snaps in the team's Thanksgiving win over New Orleans, and his time should be at least at that level going forward, as he's now the third best corner left after starter Levi Wallace and slot corner Taron Johnson. Expect to see Jackson in on at least a few tackles as Bill Belichick and Mac Jones test out the unproven corner in Week 13.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Sees extra action Thursday

    Jackson had three tackles in Thursday's 31-6 win over the Saints.

    While three tackles may seem like a ho-hum total, Jackson could be in for a much heavier workload in the coming weeks if Tre'Davious White's knee injury turns out to be serious. You can bet Bill Belichick will be looking the unproven Jackson's way if he sees the field regularly with two games between the Bills and Patriots on the remaining slate.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Suiting up for Week 3

    Jackson (knee) is active for Sunday's game against Washington, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

    Jackson was limited Wednesday and Thursday, but Friday's full practice set the table for the second-year defensive back to resume his complementary role Sunday against Taylor Heinicke and the WFT. Jackson has five tackles through two games but would probably need an injury to Tre'Davious White or Levi Wallace in order to start seeing the bulk of snaps on defense.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Questionable after full practice

    Jackson (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Washington.

    Jackson upgraded to full participation in practice Friday after consecutive limited sessions Wednesday and Thursday, but his full participation wasn't enough to take his name off the injury report. While his status likely won't be determined until shortly before kickoff Sunday, Jackson has certainly been trending in the right direction.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Minor knee injury

    Jackson was listed as limited for Wednesday's practice due to a knee injury.

    Jackson put up five tackles during Sunday's win over Miami, but that seems about his ceiling for now as he's serving in a depth role. Given that he was able to start the week practicing in some fashion, he seems like a good bet to play in Sunday's meeting with Washington.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Absent from injury report

    Jackson (neck) isn't listed on Wednesday's injury report.

    Jackson dealt with a neck injury during training camp but is apparently fully healthy heading into Week 1. He's expected to fill a depth role in the secondary for Buffalo to open the season, though there's a chance he could unseat Levi Wallace for a starting cornerback job at some point.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Back to work

    Jackson (neck) was back at practice Wednesday sporting a red no-contact jersey, Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News reports.

    It seems as if Jackson will be set to go when the Bills take on the Steelers in Week 1, though he probably didn't do enough this summer -- the untimely injury certainly didn't help -- to overtake Levi Wallace for the No. 2 cornerback spot. The Bills remain high on Jackson, however, so the 2020 seventh-rounder should see the field aplenty this season.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: To compete for starter's spot

    Jackson is expected to be the main challenger to Levi Wallace for the second starting cornerback job opposite TreDavious White, Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News reports.

    Jackson was chosen in the seventh round of the 2020 draft, and while he only saw action in five regular-season games, the Bills like what he brings to the table. GM Brandon Beane has stated that "right now those two guys will compete it out ... we're very content with those two guys and we'll see what happens" in referring to Wallace and Jackson being the clear frontrunners for that No. 2 spot. That said, Wallace has more experience, and while he's not much of a star, he's also never really let the team down over 35 regular-season starts, winning several competitions to maintain the job. Jackson will probably have to outperform him by a clear margin to earn that starting spot, but at least the Bills appear to be giving him a fair shake toward that quest.
