Bills safety Damar Hamlin remained down on field after a scary hit
The Buffalo Bills player remains in critical condition in hospital after he collapsed to the ground after making a tackle on Cincinnati Bengals receiver Tee Higgins before being treated by first responders.
“His heart had went out so they had to resuscitate him twice. They resuscitated him on the field before they brought him to the hospital and then they resuscitated him a second time when they got him to the hospital,” Hamlin’s uncle, Dorrian Glenn told CNN.
“Damar Hamlin spent last night in the intensive care unit and remains there today in critical condition at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. We are grateful and thankful for the outpouring of support we have received thus far,” the Bills stated on Twitter on Tuesday.
Hamlin’s family have thanked fans as well as praising the work of medical personnel and the support from the Bengals and coach Zac Taylor. “We are deeply moved by the prayers, kind words, and donations from fans around the country,” a statement on Tuesday read.

Skip Bayless apologises for hosting ‘Undisputed’ show following Hamlin injury
ICYMI: The Fox Sports host has been widely criticised for a tweet he made in the moments after Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest on the field on Monday night.
During the incident, Bayless tweeted: “No doubt the NFL is considering postponing the rest of this game – but how? This late in the season, a game of this magnitude is crucial to the regular-season outcome … which suddenly seems so irrelevant.”
Bayless later claimed that his original tweet had been misunderstood.
“Nothing is more important than that young man’s health. That was the point of my last tweet. I’m sorry if that was misunderstood but his health is all that matters,” Bayless tweeted.
But following the controversy his co-host Shannon Sharpe did not appear on the show on Tuesday.
At the beginning of Tuesday’s Undisputed , Bayless did not mention his tweet but seemed emotional and said he had carried on with the show after “barely sleeping on it.”
“I apologise for what for what we’re going to set out to do here today, if it offends anyone because we’re going to try to do the show pretty much as usual we do the show,” he said.
“I’ll admit up front that I’m still shook up what happened last night to Damar Hamlin. In fact, I’m still wrecked. In fact, I’m not sure I’m capable of doing this show today.”
