The Buffalo Bills said Wednesday that Damar Hamlin’s safety has shown “signs of improvement” since he suffered cardiac arrest during an NFL game in Cincinnati on Tuesday (AEDT), but he remains in critical condition .
“Damar remains in critical condition in intensive care with signs of improvement seen yesterday and overnight,” the Bills said in a social media post.
“He is expected to remain in intensive care while his health team continue to monitor and treat him.”
During the first quarter of the Bills’ penultimate game of the regular season against host Cincinnati Bengals, Hamlin got up after a tackle and then collapsed.
After his heartbeat was restored on the field as stunned players from both teams cried, prayed and hugged, an ambulance rushed Hamlin to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
The bills offered no further details, but Hamlin’s friend and business partner Jordon Rooney said in an ESPN report earlier Wednesday that doctors saw promising readings overnight that they had hoped to see by Wednesday morning.
Rooney did not immediately respond when asked to provide details of Hamlin’s condition.
“They’re trying to get his lungs back to full strength,” Dorrian Glenn, Hamlin’s uncle, said outside the hospital. “He was 100 per cent supported on ventilators (Tuesday). He’s improved, up to 50 percent. This is an upward trend and we are grateful for that.”
