Jackson covered Treylon Burks late in the second quarter as the Titans looked to get back into the game after an early deficit.

He tackled the rookie wide receiver to the ground, but teammate Edmunds also had the same goal in mind.

The 6-foot-5, 250-pound linebacker came charging headfirst, his helmet slamming hard into Jackson’s head and pushing him back in an unnatural manner.

Jackson was left flat on the ground and an ambulance was quickly called to the field as his concerned teammates knelt.

After a noisy start to the game, the mood turned to worry at Bills Stadium as some fans sat praying while doctors worked on Jackson.

He was rushed to Erie County Medical Center for a CT scan and x-rays.

In a positive development, Bills coach Sean McDermott confirmed after the game, “Dane Jackson has full movement in his extremities which is good, but we’re still waiting for more updates.

“I got to see him in the ambulance at half time and we all send him our prayers.”

NFL fans took to social media to send messages of support for Jackson, who made three tackles before leaving the game.

One wrote: “Amazing Dane Jackson got some movement after this. Really hope he’s okay.”

Another added: “I hope the good news [on Jackson’s movement] keep on going. Prayers for Dane!”

And a third said: “Great news that he has full movement. The initial fear is a spinal cord injury, but the movement of the extremities makes it less likely. Still a concern for a cervical fracture or ligament injury and a concussion. Let’s hope for the best!”

The Bills came out in the second half and put the Titans to the sword, with Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs torching the Tennessee secondary.
