Damar Hamlin remains in critical condition after suffering cardiac arrest in the National Football League (NFL) game between the Cincinnati Bengals and Buffalo Bills. The Bills announced on Tuesday. Hamlin is currently in the intensive care unit of a Cincinnati hospital and remains sedated.
Hamlin’s uncle Dorrian Glenn gave more details about his health on ESPN. Accordingly, Hamlin’s condition has improved compared to the previous day, but there are concerns about possible damage to the lungs. “I know he’s fighting. We will continue to pray. He’s in good hands with the medical staff, the doctors did a great job,” said Glenn.
Hamlin’s player agent Ron Butler also told ESPN that the footballer’s blood oxygen levels have improved. According to Glenn, Hamlin was resuscitated a second time not only on the field but also in the ambulance. The 24-year-old collapsed after a usual defensive action during Monday’s game. The game was stopped when the Bengals were 7-3.
No rescheduled yet
It is not yet clear when the game will resume. This week, however, that will no longer be the case, as the NFL announced. The last main round match day of the league is scheduled for the coming weekend. Both the Bills and Bengals are already qualified for the playoffs but still have room to improve on their starting positions.
