On Jan. 2, the 24-year-old suffered cardiac arrest in the first quarter of a game against the Bengals in Cincinnati. After several days of hospitalization at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, he was transferred to a Buffalo hospital and later discharged.

“Damar is at our facilities almost every day now,” McDermott said Wednesday at his daily news briefing. This is excellent news.”

“He’s trying to get back into a routine and reacclimatize. It goes step by step, one small step at a time.”

In 2022, Hamlin contested his second NFL campaign. Drafted in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL amateur auction, the safety has totaled 91 tackles, 1.5 quarterback sacks and one forced fumble in 15 games this season.

Hamlin’s teammates are preparing to face the Bengals in the second round of the playoffs on Sunday. The Bills defeated the Miami Dolphins 34-31 in their first one-night stand last week.
