  • 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.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Week 17 promotion

    Jackson has been elevated from the practice squad ahead of Sunday's game against Miami, the Bills' official site reports.

    The seventh-round rookie last suited up Week 10, but all signs point to the Bills using at least part of Sunday's game as a chance to rest up some starters, so Jackson could see some action in the regular-season finale.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Injures knee Sunday

    Jackson (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

    Jackson has been forced off the field during just his third appearance of the season. With Levi Wallace (undisclosed) and Josh Norman (illness) both on the reserve/COVID-19 list and absent Sunday, Jackson's absence is a somewhat significant loss for Buffalo's secondary.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Quick return, off COVID list

    Jackson was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

    The rookie seventh-rounder can now join his new teammates and will try to win a job as a reserve cornerback in his first NFL season. Cornerback E.J. Gaines has already opted out for 2020, while star corner Tre'Davious White is considering it as of Thursday morning. Jackson may end up being more needed than the usual seventh-rounder, though there's little chance he'd ever start this early in his career.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Heads to COVID list

    The Bills placed Jackson (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports

    Jackson is one of three Buffalo cornerbacks on the list, joining Siran Neal and Isiah Brown. Selected in the seventh round of April's draft, Jackson will have a delayed start to camp due to either testing positive for COVID-19 or having close contact with someone who did in the recent past.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Buffalo's final pick signs

    Jackson has signed his rookie deal, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

    The seventh-rounder from Pitt performs better on the field than his average size and below-average speed would indicate, accruing 43 pass breakups and four picks in his four seasons as a Panther. Jackson is probably not athletic enough to line up outside in the pros, but he may have the instincts and special teams ability to make the team as a depth defensive back.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Goes to Buffalo in seventh

    The Bills selected Jackson in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 239th overall.

    Jackson is a defensive back out of Pittsburgh who is pesky in coverage. He broke up a whopping 43 passes in his four-year career at Pitt and added four picks. He checks in at 5-foot-11 and 187 pounds, size that played on the outside in college, but his frame may force him inside at the next level. Look for him to be a reserve defensive back and special teamer early in his career.
