Bills safety Damar Hamlin in critical condition after collapsing on field; Buffalo-Cincinnati game postponed

Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin collapsed after making a tackle during Monday night’s game and is in critical condition.

The NFL announced the Bills-Cincinnati Bengals Monday Night Football game has been postponed.

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

Hamlin’s agent, Ira Turner, said in a statement that there was “no update” as of late Monday night.

NFL Network’s Cameron Wolfe reported Bills players would be flying home from Cincinnati on Monday night.

The NFLPA also released a statement:

“The NFLPA and everyone in our community is praying for Damar Hamlin. We have been in touch with Bills and Bengals players, and with the NFL. The only thing that matters at this moment is Damar’s health and well being.”

In the first quarter, Hamlin tackled Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins. Hamlin got up to his feet, but then collapsed backward onto the field. Hamlin required CPR while on the field for several minutes before being transported in an ambulance to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

Hamlin, 24, was attended to on the field, with players from both teams surrounding him, some of them visibly emotional.

Officials spoke with coaches from both teams prior to players warming up to restart the game. The decision was then made to halt play, and players and coaches exited the field to the locker room.

Since his hospitalization, there has been an outpouring of support to a community fundraiser Hamlin previously established.

Hamlin was a sixth-round pick of the Bills in the 2021 NFL Draft. He’s started 14 games in his second season.
