The University of Cincinnati Medical Center said Monday that Bills safety Damar Hamlin was back in Buffalo after being released from their care.
The Bills safety suffered a cardiac arrest against the Bengals.
Bills safety Damar Hamlin has returned home to Buffalo after nearly a week at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center following a Week 17 matchup against the Bengals where he suffered cardiac arrest, doctors said Monday.
Dr. William A. Knight told reporters that he accompanied Hamlin to the airport on Monday morning, adding that the second-year safety was “doing well” and is “beginning of the next stage of his recovery.”
One week after he collapsed on the field in Cincinnati, #Bills safety Damar Hamlin not only has been released from the hospital — he’s up, doing physical therapy, walking and tolerating a regular diet. Pretty incredible.

The atmosphere should be electric in Buffalo for the #Patriots–#Bills game, with special acknowledgment for the medical staff pregame and endless “3” hats on the sidelines. The plan is for Damar Hamlin to watch from his hospital bed at University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
