But as Jackson wrapped up his rival player, his Bills teammate Tremaine Edmunds came flying in over the top.

The sheer force of the impact jolted Jackson's head back in a very dangerous position.

With the player lying motionless on the field, emergency services were called into action and an ambulance made its way into the arena to take him to hospital.

That said, Buffalo did confirm that Jackson “has been taken to ECMC for evaluation of a neck injury” and will “be getting a CT scan and an X-Ray”.

The Bills also added that the star cornerback "has full movement in his extremities".
