Damar Hamlin has been discharged from the hospital a week after the Buffalo Bills safety collapsed on the field after suffering a cardiac arrest. Hamlin leaving the hospital is noteworthy since this came just days after he had his breathing tube removed.
While Hamlin is currently at a hospital in Buffalo, he is expected to soon “make a transition back to home” according to his doctors.
In the meantime, we now have a report that can shut down so much noise surrounding why and how a 24-year-old went into Cardiac Arrest.
Former NFL player and current television anchor for CNN Coy Wire dropped the news that Hamlin did not have a pre-existing condition, rather it was the tackle he delivered to Tee Higgins that caused his Cardiac Arrest.
“Doctors finishing tests to determine whether there were any pre-existing conditions that caused Damar’s cardiac arrest. Ongoing tests have determined that was not the case, appears collision was the cause.”
There was a lot of talk on the conspiracy theory side of social media that the vaccine caused this incident.
Hamlin posted his own update on Twitter Tuesday and asked for his supporters’ continued prayers.
Doctors said Monday that while Hamlin is “doing well,” they would not speculate about his future in football.
“He still has a little bit of a ways to go in terms of his ongoing recovery,” Dr. Knight said.
“We’re thrilled to where he is today. He’s up. He’s walking around. He’s got an amazing, genuine sense of humor. And his family is amazing, and we’re happy he’s with them. But, in terms of any kind of conjecture to his future, that’s still significantly in the future, and it’s going to be up to Damar and a great team of physicians to help him.”
Hamlin will be close to his team when it hosts the No. 7 seed Miami Dolphins in the AFC wild-card round Sunday.
