Jan. 11, 2023 – Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamlin was released from the hospital Wednesday, more than a week after he suffered cardiac arrest and was resuscitated during a National Football League game.

His release followed two days at Buffalo General Medical Center for the Bills safety, 24. He had spent a week at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center after he collapsed during a game against the Bengals on January 2. Doctors there said he made a “remarkable” recovery.

In Buffalo, Hamlin had a “comprehensive medical evaluation as well as a series of cardiac, neurological and vascular testing on Tuesday,” the team tweeted in a statement.

It quoted Jamie Nadler, MD, saying, “We are confident that Damar can be safely discharged to continue his rehabilitation at home and with the Bills.”

The Bills are set to face the Miami Dolphins wild-card playoff game Sunday.

The Associated Press said Bills Coach Sean McDermott has left it up to Hamlin whether he would visit the team.

“His health is first and foremost on our mind a far as his situation goes,” McDermott told reporters. “We’ll welcome him back as he feels ready.”
