Damar Hamlin continues to make progress in his recovery as he no longer needs a breathing tube. Also, Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott revealed on Friday that Hamlin was able to FaceTime with his teammates. The latest news regarding Hamlin's recovery are strongly encouraging as the NFL community is all happy to hear that the Bills safety continues to get better each day.
While on FaceTime with Bills players, Hamlin had a short message for his teammates: “I love you boys." This was revealed by Bills head coach McDermott.
Hamlin continues to get better
Meanwhile, as expected - the NFL announced that the Bills and Cincinnati Bengals game won't resume.
Some feared that resuming the Bills and Bengals after what happened would probably be too much for some players. On Thursday, the NFL announced that the game would not continue this week nor at a later date. "This has been a very difficult week.
We continue to focus on the recovery of Damar Hamlin and are encouraged by the improvements in his condition as well as the tremendous outpouring of support and care for Damar and his family from across the country. We are also incredibly appreciative of the amazing work of the medical personnel and commend each and every one of them," NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement.
Meanwhile, Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow was asked about his gesture that many respected very much. After Hamlin collapsed on the field, Burrow made his way into the Bills' locker room to express his support. “Everyone out there was watching it and thinking that could be me, that could be any of us in this locker room.
I just wanted to make sure everyone knows in that locker room how I feel about them, to make sure I tell them that," Burrow said.
