Bills Damar Hamlin Discharged From Cincinnati Hospital, Headed Home To Buffalo One Week After Terrifying Collapse


(Yahoo) One week after his terrifying collapse, Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin was discharged from the University of Cincinnati Medical Center on Monday and has returned home.

Hamlin was in the hospital since he first experienced cardiac arrest on the field during the Bills’ Week 17 game against the Bengals on Jan. 2.


Hamlin’s case has been transferred to a hospital in Buffalo, where he will continue to recover, something that will be measured in “weeks to months.”



Hamlin went down in the first quarter of the Bills’ game against the Bengals after a collision with Cincinnati receiver Tee Higgins. Hamlin stood up after that play, but then suddenly stumbled back and collapsed. He remained on the field for a long time while athletic trainers and medical staff performed CPR. He was eventually transported to the hospital, and the game was canceled.

By Wednesday, Hamlin started showing “signs of improvement.” He started waking up on Thursday, and doctors removed his breathing tube that night, which was another massive step in his “remarkable” recovery.

UC Health doctors said Monday that Hamlin has been up walking in the hospital in recent days, tolerating a regular diet and has been meeting with family members and his care team, per ESPN’s Coley Harvey.
