News Update


Damar Hamlin, the Buffalo Bills’ safety, has been authorized to return four months after suffering a cardiac arrest.

Damar Hamlin of the Buffalo Bills has been cleared to return to the field four months after suffering a heart arrest on the field during an NFL game.

Hamlin, 25, fell while making a tackle during a match on January 2 and had to be resuscitated on the field.

He has returned to Bills off-season training after receiving clearance from doctors and could play again later this year.

“We’re super excited for Damar,” Bills head coach Sean McDermott stated.

American Football alerts are available in the BBC Sport app, as are NFL fixtures and results.
Hamlin collapsed during a game against the Cincinnati Bengals after making a tackle on wide receiver Tee Higgins, and he was treated on the field for more than 30 minutes before being transferred to an intensive care unit.

He was released from the hospital nine days later.

Hamlin stated in February that he planned to return to football “eventually” and that he was still processing the stress of the occurrence.

“I’m still working my way through things,” he continued. “I’m still trying to process all of the emotions and trauma that comes from…dealing with a situation like that.”

Following Hamlin’s collapse, there was tremendous support from the athletic community.

However, Bills general manager Brandon Beane stated on Tuesday, “He’s cleared to resume full activities like any other player returning from injury.”

“He’s fully cleared, he’s here, and he’s in a great headspace to come back and make his return.”
