Damar Hamlin is showing signs of improvement but remains in critical condition, the Buffalo Bills have said.
“Damar remains in the ICU in critical condition with signs of improvement noted yesterday and overnight,” the team said in a statement shared online.
“He is expected to remain under intensive care as his health care team continues to monitor and treat him.”
Hamlin suffered cardiac arrest and collapsed on the field on Monday night during a game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
First responders administered CPR on the field for ten minutes before eventually being taken by ambulance to the hospital.
The Bills are holding meetings and a walk-through Wednesday ahead of Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots, the team said. The NFL said the Bills-Bengals will not resume this week.
The NFL hasn’t discussed whether Sunday’s New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills game will be postponed.
“We have not had that discussion. We have literally … just constantly talking to the clubs and in particular, the Bills,” Troy Vincent, NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations said at a league virtual news conference on Wednesday.
“It’s really important that we just keep the pulse of the coach and the players and don’t get in front of that.
