Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin collapsed on the field during the first quarter. He made a tackle on Tee Higgins then fell to the ground on Monday Night Football’s Buffalo Bills vs. Cincinnati Bengals game.
Medical personnel administered CPR to Hamlin on the field. He was eventually transferred to a nearby hospital to get medical attention.
The NFL announced that the game was postponed. At the time of publication, there is no make up date at this time.
We do not know if this game will be made up. Right now, that does not matter as all the attention is with Hamlin.
“Please continue to pray for Damar and his family,” Hamlin’s sports agent Ira Turner said. “We currently have no update at this time. Will ask that you keep the family in your prayers.”
Cincinnati Medical Center is not expected to release a statement on Monday night. A statement will most likely come on Tuesday.
The 24-year-old has been with the Bills since the 2021 season. Hamlin was a sixth round pick by the Bills in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Before joining the Bills, he played for the Pittsburgh Panthers.
The game was halted with 5:58 left in the first quarter. An hour later, the game was postponed.
This season, he has appeared in 15 games, including 13 starts. He had 91 tackles coming into Monday night.
He also had six tackles for a loss and three quarterback hits. He also had 1.5 sacks, one forced fumble, and two pass deflections.
