  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Won't play Sunday

    Jackson (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Miami, Michael Giardi of NFL Network reports. Jackson was taken off the field in an ambulance Monday against the Titans, but he underwent further testing and appears to have avoided a major injury. It's not yet clear when he'll be able to return to the field, but Taron Johnson and Kaiir Elam are candidates to see increased roles against the Dolphins.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Doesn't participate in walk-through

Jackson was released from the hospital Tuesday after testing determined that he didn't suffer a major neck injury.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Appears to avoid major injury

    Jackson (neck) has been released from the hospital Tuesday and testing determined no major injury. Jackson continues to undergo evaluation, but it appears that he's avoided a serious injury to his neck or spine after being taken off the field during Monday's win over the Titans in an ambulance. The Bills will certainly take a cautious approach to the 25-year-old's return to the field, and coach Sean McDermott should offer more updates on Jackson's health as the week continues.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Taken off in ambulance

    Jackson (upper body) exited Monday's game via ambulance after taking a hit to the head and neck area near the end of the first half, Doug Kyed of Pro Football Focus reports. He will undergo a CT scan and an X-ray at ECMC Hospital in Buffalo, per the Bills' official press release. Jackson suffered a scary hit to the head from a teammate while the two attempted to make a tackle near the end of the first half of Monday's game against the Titans. The 25-year-old was seen moving his extremities while down on the field after sustaining this injury, according to Kyed. While the exact nature of this injury is still unclear, the serious nature of Jackson's departure indicates that he will stay out for the remainder of Monday's game.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Active Monday

    Jackson (knee) will play Monday against the Titans. Jackson was unable to practice for most of the past week, but he was able to get in a full practice Saturday. His ability to take the field will benefit the Bills' secondary when they battle the Titans on Monday.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Questionable Monday

    Jackson (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Monday's tilt against the Titans. Jackson was a non-participant at practice earlier in the week before logging a full workload Saturday. Thus, he does appear to be trending in the right direction. His status is unlikely to be determined until close to kickoff.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Sits out Friday's walk-through

    Jackson (knee) didn't participate in Friday's walk-through practice. After a standout camp, Jackson earned a starting job at corner, at least until Tre'Davious White (knee) returns. He played 64 defensive snaps in the season opener and recorded five tackles, one pass defense and one interception. However, he's been sidelined for back-to-back practices due to a knee injury leading up to Week 2. If Jackson is unable to suit up Monday against the Titans, rookies Kaiir Elam and Christian Benford could both be thrust into starting roles.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Ready for challenging start

    Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier indicated this week that he will "mix it up" between rookie cornerbacks Kaiir Elam and Christian Benford when the team takes on the Rams on Thursday Night Football, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. That would seem to imply Jackson will serve as the starting cornerback opposite the two rookies. This is a fluid situation, as star corner Tre'Davious White (knee) will eventually return and resume one of the starting spots. As far as Thursday is concerned, the Rams love to push the pedal on offense and it wouldn't be a surprise if Jackson ends up accruing at least a handful of tackles in what's set to be an exciting season-opening game.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Earns boss's praise

    Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier said Tuesday that he still feels Jackson's experience and talent put him in a starter's role in the short term, Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com reports. Jackson has been in a battle with first-round rookie Kaiir Elam all summer, though both have technically been working out in the starter's role while stud corner Tre'Davious White continues his return from his 2021 season-ending knee injury. It's not even a certainly that White, still on the PUP list, is ready for Week 1, but either way it looks like Jackson will see plenty of playing time to begin the season. That said, Elam has been making strides all summer as well, so playing time could be fluid once White is closer to 100 percent.

  • 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: 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: 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: 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.
