Bills public relations tweeted out that Jackson had been taken to the Erie County Medical to be evaluated for a neck injury. He will receive an x-ray and a CT scan. Perhaps the most positive update is that Jackson has feeling in all of his extremities.
The Bills selected Jackson in the seventh-round of the 2020 NFL Draft out of Pittsburgh. Last season, Jackson played all 17 games, where he recorded 41 combined tackles and six defended passes.
In Week 1 against the Los Angeles Rams, Jackson recorded his second-career interception by picking off a pass from Matthew Stafford.
