The Bills will go another season with Tre’Davious White, as he tore his achilles last Sunday, meaning that the secondary for Buffalo needs to step up with their young guys. While the focus could be on the return of Kaiir Elam, who has been a healthy scratch this season for every game, other guys like Dane Jackson will also need to step up in the absence of White.

Through four games, Jackson has been targeted 5 times, allowing 5 receptions for 56 yards and allowing over 11 yards per catch. Sure, it is a small sample but 11 yards moves the chains on a third-and-ten, and the Bills will have to be able to stop the Jaguars in those situations. 

Another thing to keep in mind is that Christian Benford suffered a shoulder injury last week, so with him being potentially not at 100% this upcoming game, Jackson could very well see a lot of playing time if not the entire game.
