Update from Damar Hamlin: Buffalo Bills safety plans to attend game against Miami Dolphins after collapse, AP sources say
ORCHARD PARK, New York– Bill’s safety Damar Hamlin, who is still recovering after suffering cardiac arrest during a game in Cincinnati two weeks ago, plans to attend Buffalo’s wildcard playoff home game against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, a person with direct knowledge of the game said Player’s schedule with The Associated Press.
The video above is about Damar Hamlin visits his team-mates for the first time since his injury.
The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because Hamlin has kept his schedule and recovery a secret since being discharged from a Buffalo hospital on Wednesday.
But on Sunday, Hamlin posted a message on social media.
“My heart goes out to my boys as they compete today! Supporting from home while I focus on my recovery. Nothing I want more than to be out there with them! LFG. #BillsMafia,” he wrote on Twitter.
Hamlin visited teammates at the Bills’ stadium on Saturday, but has not been seen in public since he was taken from the field in Cincinnati in an ambulance on Jan. 2. He spent more than a week in the hospital, most of the time in critical condition.
His participation in the game is expected to further energize fans eager to dull the memory of Hamlin’s collapse, when the 24-year-old from the Pittsburgh suburb of McKees Rocks got up after a tackle against the Bengals, then fell backwards and landed motionless on the turf of Paycor Stadium.
The Bills have not released details of Hamlin’s plans for the game.
