Dallas Cowboys star linebacker Micah Parsons has responded to comments from ESPN analyst Bart Scott on Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins.
During Monday night’s game against the Bengals, Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin went into cardiac arrest after attempting a tackle on Higgins. Thankfully, medical personnel was able to restore his heartbeat before he was taken away in an ambulance to a hospital.
The NFL decided to postpone the game following the horrifying incident. The league has since announced that they will not be rescheduling the game this week.
Scott, a former NFL linebacker, has received widespread criticism for blaming Higgins over the freak accident during an appearance on “First Take.” Specifically, Scott accused Higgins of lowering his helmet on the play.

Parsons responded to Scott’s head-scratching comments with the following tweet, where he asked why some people are allowed to speak on television:
Hamlin’s uncle, Dorrian Glenn, provided an update to ESPN’s Coley Harvey on Tuesday evening. Glenn stated that his nephew’s health is “improving from where he was yesterday”, and that Hamlin “is in great hands with the medical team he has here.”
ESPN also heard from Ron Butler, Hamlin’s agent, that his oxygen levels have gotten better as well.
We’ll be sure to share further details on Hamlin’s condition when they become available.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
