Damar Hamlin Update

Buffalo Bills’ safety Damar Hamlin remains in critical condition after he suffered a cardiac arrest on the field during a game against the Cincinnati Bengals Monday night.

The 24-year-old Hamlin collapsed following a tackle on the Bengals’ Tee Higgins, where he appeared to be hit in the chest by Higgins’ shoulder (see play). Medical personnel administered CPR and an automated external defibrillator for nearly 20 minutes before transferring him to a local hospital. The second-year University of Pittsburgh alum became a starter for the Bills this season.

It took the NFL one hour before the game was suspended indefinitely. The teams are battling for the AFC No. 1 seed before playoff week starts Jan. 14. NFL officials said yesterday the game would not be resumed this week, providing no further details.

A community toy drive, organized by Hamlin since 2020, has surged to more than $5.5M in donations, as of this writing.
