Last year, the Buffalo Bills almost witnessed the worst-case scenario on the football field, with safety Damar Hamlin collapsing on the gridiron during a crucial game against the Cincinnati Bengals ahead of the NFL playoffs.
All signs pointed to the worst possible outcome for this on-field incident as Hamlin remained seemingly lifeless on the field, with both teams, the league, and the fans preparing for some tragic news about the Bills safety.
Despite what appeared to be a very tragic incident occurring on the football field, with Hamlin being taken to the nearest hospital and the rest of the game against the Bengals being postponed, the 25-year-old was able to recover fully and remarkably is ready to play football again.
According to NFL insider Jordan Schultz, Hamlin will play in Sunday’s game against the division-rival Miami Dolphins.

When an athlete goes through an experience like this, especially when it is televised for all to see and talk about, their professional career usually comes to an end if they can pull through the medical hurdles it takes to get back to living a normal life off the field.
That said, the full recovery that Hamlin has made and the fact he’ll be playing his first game less than a year after the on-field incident is truly remarkable.
This seems to be nothing short of a miracle, and Hamlin only knows what it took to get back to form and convince the Bills and the NFL that he’s fit to resume his promising football career in Buffalo.NEXT: Graphic Shows Bills' Notable Dominance Over Dolphins
