Buffalo Bills defenseman Damar Hamlin collapsed on the field and underwent cardiopulmonary resuscitation; game paused

CINCINNATI – Buffalo Bills guard Damar Hamlin collapsed on the field and appeared to be undergoing CPR before being taken off the field in an ambulance during Monday night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Hamlin collided with Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins after completion, got to his feet, then fell backwards a second or two later and lay motionless. He was surrounded by stunned players from both teams, and when he was taken off the field 16 minutes later, Billy gathered in prayer.

While medical personnel were gathered around Hamlin, his uniform was cut off and he appeared to be doing CPR. He was tied to the back and placed in an ambulance.

The game was suspended 21 minutes after the injury and the players slowly walked off the field.

Hamlin, 24, is in his second year with the Bills. He didn’t see much playing time as a rookie, but has played a much bigger role in Buffalo’s defense this season. Entering the game, the 6-foot, 200-pound Hamlin made 91 tackles, including 63 single tackles and 1 1/2 sacks.
