The ambulance left the field with Hamlin and headed to the hospital around 9:25 pm. He has been transported to a local hospital where he remains in critical condition.

In a very powerful, emotional moment, the Bills team and personnel gathered on the field to pray for Hamlin before returning to their locker room.

The emotion of the players speaks to just how serious the situation is. Many players, including Bills wide receiver Steffon Diggs, were in tears as they watched Hamlin receiving urgent medical attention.

The game has been officially postponed by the National Football League as Hamlin’s condition remains critical.

In a statement by the NFL, the league said,

“Tonight’s Buffalo Bills-Cincinnati Bengals game has been postponed after Buffalo Bills’ Damar Hamlin collapsed, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced.

Hamlin received immediate medical attention on the field by team and independent medical staff and local paramedics. He was then transported to a local hospital where he is in critical condition.

Our thoughts are with Damar and the Buffalo Bills. We will provide more information as it becomes available.

The NFL has been in constant communication with the NFL Players Association which is in agreement with postponing the game.”
