Buffalo Bills Damar Hamlin Update
In one of the scariest moments in NFL history, this past Monday, a routine play on Monday Night Football landed star safety, Damar Hamlin, in intensive care. After what many would call a normal defensive tackle, Buffalo Bills star Damar Hamlin collapsed on the field after suffering a heart attack. It took close to 10 minutes of the medical staff performing CPR on the field to get his heart beating again, before taking him to a local hospital in Cincinnati. While Damar remains in intensive care, the sports community has rallied with special tributes to him, including our Denver Broncos.
