That's welcome news after a scary scene at Highmark Stadium on Monday night when Jackson was hit by teammate Tremaine Edmunds, as the two were trying to make a tackle.

Jackson injured his neck and stayed on the ground, as he was looked at by trainers for several minutes. He was eventually placed on a stretcher and into an ambulance and taken to the hospital.

The team provided an update on Jackson's status Tuesday morning:

The Bills saw several players go down with injuries during their 41-7 rout of the Tennessee Titans, including linebacker Matt Milano (stinger), defensive tackle Jordan Phillips (hamstring), safety Micah Hyde (neck), and center Mitch Morse (elbow), in addition to Jackson.

McDermott said it's still too early to give more of an evaluation on the injured players, and said the team will take it "day-by-day" with each.

The first official injury report of the week will be out on Wednesday, as the team begins preparation for a matchup against the Miami Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium. Both teams are 2-0 to start the season.
