The Buffalo Bills released a statement on Thursday morning stating that Damar Hamlin, who is still hospitalised in critical condition after suffering a cardiac arrest that caused him to pass out on the field during a game in Cincinnati on Monday night, is “making steady progress” and “appears to be neurologically intact.” 24 year old safety Hamlin is in his second year with the squad.
The Bills said that Damar Hamlin had made significant progress on the previous day, according to the doctors attending to him at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. “He has shown that, despite being seriously unwell, his brain health looks to be unharmed. He is making steady improvement as his lungs continue to recover.”
Since Hamlin’s broadcast breakdown and hospital transfer earlier this week sparked a flood of worried online comments, the team is “grateful for the love and support” that it has received.
A few minutes prior to the tweet from the Bills, Kaiir Elam, a cornerback for the Buffalo Bills, also provided a favourable update. Hamlin was awake and progressing, according to Elam.
“Thank God, Elam said, “Our boy is doing better, awake, and showing more signs of improvement. Please don’t stop saying prayers. Everyone adores number three!”
Hamlin was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center by ambulance following Monday night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Six minutes into the game, fans witnessed Hamlin fall to the ground after being tackled, seeming to be struck by Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins.
Before being sent to the hospital, Hamlin received prompt CPR on the field when his heart stopped, according to a statement from the Bills published early on Tuesday.
The Buffalo Bills’ statement at the time said,
In fact, Hamlin’s heart stopped twice, his uncle Dorrian Glenn claimed Tuesday night, first on the field when they revived him and again at the hospital, when “they had to zap him with the defibrillator.”
Although little more facts about the player’s condition or potential causes of the heart arrest were made public, Hamlin’s condition was labelled as serious. In order to cause an arrhythmia, which is an irregular heartbeat that interferes with the regular flow of blood to the brain, a bunt force trauma to the chest area “in the exact right spot, at the exact right moment during his heartbeat” may have occurred, according to CBS News medical contributor Dr. David Agus.
In a Wednesday afternoon update, the Bills stated that Hamlin’s condition has improved.
The team said at the time that “Damar remains in the ICU in critical condition with indications of improvement seen yesterday and overnight.” “His medical team will continue to watch and treat him, and he is likely to stay in critical care.”
Damar Hamlin played 14 games in his first season as a backup, but this is his first NFL season as a starter with the Buffalo Bills. He was selected by the team in the 2021 NFL Draft after playing four seasons of successful collegiate football at the University of Pittsburgh.
