Buffalo Bills Safety Damar Hamlin Is Showing Positive Signs of Recovery but Remains in Intensive Care Unit


    A tweet posted by the Buffalo Bills stated that stricken player Damar Hamlin's health showed “improvement” overnight.

    “Damar remains in the ICU in critical condition with signs of improvement noted yesterday and overnight,” the Bills added. “He is expected to remain under intensive care as his health care team continues to monitor and treat him.”

    A spokesperson for the Hamlin family confirmed that the footballer had demonstrated some “promising readings.” The spokesman added that they were hoping for more improvement in the near future, according to ProFootballTalk.

    CNN stated that Hamlin was resuscitated twice, once in the field and then in the hospital.

    Hamlin's uncle, Dorrian Glenn, told CNN, “His heart had went out so they had to resuscitate him twice. They resuscitated him on the field before they brought him to the hospital and then they resuscitated him a second time when they got him to the hospital.

    “They sedated him just to give a better chance for him to just continue to heal better. We are just taking it day by day. It seems like he’s trending upwards in a positive way,” Glenn added.

    Hamlin will remain in the intensive care unit of the University of Cincinnati Medical Center after he collapsed on the field during the NFL’s Monday Night Football broadcast.

    A teammate of Hamlin’s, Dion Dawkins, said the team is rooting for Hamlin's continued improvement, but he added, “Only a higher power can really take control of what is next.”

    The fallen player said publicly before the incident how grateful he was to play professional football. He also remarked that no one ever knows when their “last day” will be.

    “It’s a super blessing, super blessing,” Hamlin said in a video from November. “I cherish it. I can’t even describe it, but I cherish it every second that I can. We just had our prayer, our DB prayer we do every Wednesday. He was next to me and I just grabbed his hand a little bit harder just because you know you never know when your last day could be that you get to experience something like this.”
