He fell to the ground in an incredibly alarming fashion, and the on-field medical team, along with the team at UC medical center, worked quickly to ensure that Hamlin had the best care possible to meet his needs.
Now, the world is waiting to hear any additional updates on Hamlin and his health, waiting on bated breath to hear if he is okay.
Football is the farthest thing from the minds of Hamlin’s teammates, and they are also waiting alongside NFL fans to hear any sort of news regarding his status.
Who Is Demar Hamlin?
Hamlin is a cornerback and is in his second NFL season.
He was drafted by the Bills in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL Draft and started in 13 of the Bills’ 15 games this year.
While Hamlin has certainly made a difference on-field for the Bills, he is a charitable individual off of the field as well.
One of the reasons that he didn’t go to a larger college after high school was to stay close to his family, particularly his younger brother.
Hamlin also has done lots of charitable work with local hospitals and even has a GoFundMe account to raise more money, which has grown significantly after last night’s game.
