Amid the good news surrounding Damar Hamlin, his teammate had something to say about people blaming Tee Higgins for his condition.
Bills quarterback Josh Allen and head coach Sean McDermott addressed the media for the first time on Thursday and the superstar QB made sure to show his support for Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins, who was wrongfully being blamed for what happened.
“I do want to say one more thing. I haven’t reached out to Tee but I hope that he got some relief today,” he said.
“I saw some stuff on Twitter and people should not be attacking him whatsoever. I’m glad that Damar’s family came out and said that.”
“That’s a football play and I hope he doesn’t hold that upon himself, there’s nothing else he could have done in that situation,” Allen added.
After Hamlin tackled Higgins after a reception, he would stand up and then collapse to the ground as medical personnel would move in and administer CPR to get him breathing.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins spoke to reporters after practice on Thursday and shared that Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin’s mother contacted him Thursday morning to give updates about her son’s condition after he collided with him.
“He’s doing good, so I’m in a good place right now,” Higgins said. “It feels good, knowing that he’s OK, he’s doing better. It makes me feel better inside too.”
Hamlin’s collapse and resuscitation was an unprecedented occurrence that we hope we never have to see again.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
