According to UC Health, Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin has reportedly been discharged from the hospital and has returned home.
Doctors believe Hamlin has reached a lot of significant milestones in his recovery.
He has been receiving physical and occupational therapy and is able to eat on a daily basis, according to his doctors. Dr. William Knight, one of the physicians, stated that Hamlin was “doing well.”
Hamlin, 24, went into cardiac arrest following a tackle in a game against the Bengals a week ago and had to be resuscitated on the field before being brought to the hospital by ambulance.
When Hamlin arrived at the hospital, he needed to be intubated to help him breathe. On January 6, doctors removed the breathing tube.
Doctors said Hamlin will remain in the hospital in Buffalo.
Shortly after their press appearance, Hamlin tweeted that he is appreciative for the treatment he had at UC Medical Center and is excited to be back in Buffalo.
