Damar Hamlin’s fight since he went into cardiac arrest last Monday night has inspired many people across the country, if not the world.
Less than a week later, Hamlin has begun to breathe on his own again while speaking with his family and teammates.
The most inspirational Hamlin moment came when he woke up during the week, and had one thing on his mind.
“Did we win?” he asked.
Former Bills head coach Rex Ryan was so moved by this and he expressed so while fighting tears on air Saturday.
“We needed that. As fans, we needed it,” he said. “This guy is a legend, You talk about a fighter? Dang right he’s a fighter, he’s a dang legend. Thank you, I needed it as a dad, as a coach and as a fan of this game.”
Ryan last coached in the NFL for the Bills in 2015 and 2016.
Hamlin has since been released from a Cincinnati hospital and continues to make progress. He has posted on social media several times, especially on Sunday when the Bills took the field against the Patriots and won.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
