Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin has returned home to Buffalo after spending nearly a week at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center after suffering a cardiac arrest and collapsing in the final game of the week against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Doctors said at a news conference Monday that Hamlin was released from the hospital early and flown to Buffalo, where he is “doing well” and “at the beginning of the next phase of his recovery.” “.

Doctors say they still don’t know what caused him to collapse a week ago during a Monday Night Football game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Dr. William Knight told reporters on Monday: “We are happy that he is on the mend.”

“We expect him to undergo ongoing tests and evaluations to determine the cause of the incident and rule out any pathology,” he added.

Doctors said Hamlin had been walking since Friday, eating regularly and receiving treatment. They said his recovery from the heart attack, which is considered a life-threatening event, was on what medical professionals called a “very normal” or even an “accelerated” trajectory.
