Damar Hamlin of Bills at his first game since cardiac arrest | UKTN Sports


Damar Hamlin, who went into cardiac arrest during a game three weeks ago, will be attending Highmark Stadium on Sunday for Buffalo’s AFC division-round playoff game against the Cincinnati Bengals, according to the team’s social media.

The Bills posted a video on Instagram and Twitter showing Hamlin arriving at the team’s locker room and the message “Welcome home, Damar”.

Hamlin, 24, has not been seen in public since the Bills and Bengals last met on January 2 in a game that came to an abrupt halt and was eventually canceled after Hamlin collapsed on the field.

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Hamlin began frequent visits to the team’s facility soon after his release from the hospital, in what he described as “dipping his toe back in here and heading out to just get back to himself.”

His presence was enough to cheer his teammates, who surrounded him after Hamlin’s collapse as medical teams rushed onto the field and used CPR and an automated external defibrillator (AED) to restart his heart.

The Bills have not released the results of tests Hamlin underwent to determine why his heart stopped after being punched in the chest while making what appeared to be a routine tackle.
