Buffalo Bills Announce Damar Hamlin Delivered a 3-Word Message to His Teammates After Taking Another Big Recovery Step

Published on

The Buffalo Bills stated on Friday that safety Damar Hamlin’s breathing tube was withdrawn overnight, and that he expressed his appreciation for his teammates.

“Damar Hamlin FaceTimed into our team meeting today to talk to players and coaches. What he said to the team: ‘Love you boys,’” the Bills tweeted.

The Buffalo Bills stated on Friday that safety Damar Hamlin’s breathing tube was withdrawn overnight, and that he expressed his appreciation for his teammates. The head coach of the Buffalo Bills, Sean McDermott, told reporters on Friday, “He’s just got some staple things that they know him for and that he does. And he made the heart symbol probably more than anything, and then he gave them a thumbs up.”

The team gave this update via Twitter: “Per the physicians at [the University of Cincinnati Medical Center], Damar’s breathing tube was removed overnight. He continues to progress remarkably in his recovery.

“His neurologic function remains intact and he has been able to talk to his family and care team.”

Hamlin had heart arrest and collapsed on the field during Monday night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Dion Dawkins, left tackle for the Bills, lauded the training staff for providing Hamlin the emergency care he required to survive.

During a news conference on Thursday, McDermott praised a lengthy number of individuals for going above and above to aid Hamlin and also commended God for his player’s continued health.

“Finally and just as important as anything is glory to God for his keeping Damar and his family in the palm of his hand over the last couple of days and his healing powers,” McDermott said.

He added, “The amount of faith, hope and love that we saw on display over the last three days has been nothing short of amazing.”

Also on Thursday, Dr. Timothy Pritts of UCMC stated that Hamlin’s first question upon awakening was, “Did we win?”

“Yes, Damar, you won. You’ve won the game of life,” Pritts said he responded.

The Bills will play the New England Patriots this weekend, according to quarterback Josh Allen, because they know that’s what head coach Tom Hamlin wants.

“You can’t not honor his request to go out there,” Allen said. “To know that’s what he wants, that’s what his dad wants, I think guys are excited to get out there.”
