Sept. 20 (UPI) -- Buffalo Bills cornerback Dane Jackson, who prompted a somber scene due to an injury he sustained in a Week 2 win over the Tennessee Titans, was released from a Buffalo, N.Y., hospital, the Bills announced Tuesday.

Jackson sustained a neck injury when he collided with teammate Tremaine Edmunds in the third quarter of the Bills' 41-7 victory Monday in Orchard Park, N.Y.

An ambulance that came onto the field took Jackson to Erie County Medical Center, where he received a CT scan and X-ray and spent the night.

The Bills said Tuesday that those tests determined "there was no major injury to his neck or spinal cord." Jackson will undergo further evaluation Tuesday afternoon.
