Bills CB Dane Jackson (neck) released from hospital, avoids major injury

The Buffalo Bills received good news Tuesday morning regarding cornerback Dane Jackson, who was transported to the hospital after suffering a neck injury in Monday's 41-7 win over the Tennessee Titans.

NFL Network Insider Mike Garafolo reported Tuesday on Good Morning Football that Jackson was able to walk out of the hospital and all indications are that he avoided major injury.

Jackson was released from the hospital and is resting at home, per Garafolo.

Bills head coach Sean McDermott told reporters on Tuesday afternoon that they are "very fortunate that [Jackson's] in good spirits today," and that the team will approach Jackson's situation on a day-by-day basis.

The Bills DB's neck bent backward after colliding with teammate Tremaine Edmunds during a tackle late in the first half on Monday. The 25-year-old was loaded onto an ambulance as teammates gathered around during the stoppage.

Jackson had full movement in his extremities as he was taken to ECMC Hospital in Buffalo, N.Y., for evaluation, a CT scan and X-rays.

Buffalo said in a statement Tuesday morning that Jackson "underwent various tests which determined there was no major injury to his neck or spinal cord." The CB is undergoing further evaluation Tuesday.

The fact that he was released less than 24 hours after suffering the injury is a fantastic sign for the former seventh-round pick who worked his way into a starting role.
