Damar Hamlin appears to be on the road to recovery. The Buffalo Bills safety, who went into cardiac arrest after a play during a game on Monday night in Cincinnati, “has shown remarkable improvement over the last 24 hours,” according to a statement issued by the team via Twitter on Thursday morning.
“While still critically ill, he has demonstrated that he appears to be neurologically intact. His lungs continue to heal and he is making steady progress,” the team said.
Hamlin’s injury has sparked an outpouring of sympathetic responses and well wishes from football fans and others across the country. A GoFundMe campaign to support Hamlin’s charitable endeavors has raised more than $7 million as well. The Bills Monday game, against the Cincinnati Bengals, was suspended after Hamlin went down. No announcement has yet been made as to whether it will be resumed.
