Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin collided with a Bengals receiver, got up and fell backwards a second or two later, lying motionless.

CINCINNATI — Buffalo Bill’s safety Damar Hamlin collapsed on the field and was administered CPR before being wheeled away in an ambulance along the way Monday night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Hamlin clashed with Bengals receiver Tee Higgins after a close. He stood up, seemed to adjust his face mask with his right hand, then fell back about three seconds later and lay motionless.

Hamlin was surrounded by stunned players from both teams and when he was taken off the field 16 minutes later, the Bills gathered in prayer.

As medical personnel gathered around Hamlin, his uniform was cut off and he appeared to be given CPR. ESPN reported on its TV show that Hamlin was also given oxygen. He was strapped to a backboard and taken to the ambulance.

“No one went through that,” longtime NFL quarterback Troy Aikman told the ESPN show. “I’ve never seen anything like it either.”

The game was stopped 21 minutes after the injury, and the players slowly walked off the field.

Hamlin, 24, spent five years at college in Pitt – his hometown – and appeared in 48 games for the Panthers during that span. As a senior, he was a second-team All-ACC player, was elected team captain, and was selected to the Senior Bowl.

He was drafted in the sixth round by the Bills in 2021, played in 14 games as a rookie and became a starter this year after losing Micah Hyde for the season through injury.

At the start of the game, the 6-foot, 200-pound Hamlin had 91 tackles, including 63 solo tackles, and 1 1/2 sacks.
