Roger Goodell, the commissioner of the NFL, stated in a statement: “On the field, team and independent medical personnel, as well as local paramedics, provided Hamlin with immediate medical care. He was subsequently brought to a nearby hospital, where his condition is severe.”

“We are thinking of Damar and the Buffalo Bills. We will provide additional details as they become available “the NFL reported.

The NFLPA and the entire community are praying for Damar Hamlin, according to a statement from the NFLPA. “We’ve communicated with Bills and Bengals players, as well as the NFL. At present, Damar’s health and well-being are the only things that matter.”

Hamlin, 24, slumped after colliding with Bengals receiver Tee Higgins in the first quarter. After completing a tackle on Higgins, Hamlin immediately rose up and took a single step forward before halting and collapsing backward.

Bills players immediately indicated to the sidelines for assistance from their training staff. Hamlin appeared to be receiving CPR for around ten minutes before being removed from the field.

Both teams’ players flocked around him with distressed expressions. As he was being carried away, the Bills squad gathered for a prayer.

Outside the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where Hamlin is being kept, fans from both teams gathered. Stefon Diggs, a wide receiver with the Buffalo Bills, was also seen at the hospital.

Amanda Nageleisen, a hospital spokesperson for UC, told NPR that there is no information about Hamlin or the care he is receiving. In addition, it is unknown when hospital officials will brief the media.

A date for the game’s resumption has not been announced.

Hamlin is in his second NFL season. His college football career was spent at the University of Pittsburgh.
