“First and foremost, the Bengals continue to send thoughts and prayers to Damar Hamlin and his family,” Bengals owner Mike Brown said in a statement. “Our hearts are with everyone in this unprecedented time – what we can do is support one another.”
Brown expressed gratitude toward the players and NFL fans around the country for their reaction to the frightening scene.
“Last night was supposed to be a great night for the NFL and a great showcase for our hometown. Instead, the human side of our sport became paramount… and in that moment, humanity and love rose to the forefront.
“As medical personnel undertook extraordinary measures, both teams demonstrated respect and compassion while fans in the stadium and people around the country bolstered the support for Damar and love for each other.
“The Bengals are thankful for the love and compassion shown by all. Praying for Damar.”
The NFL announced Tuesday that the game between the Bills and the Bengals will not be resumed this week and that no decision has been made on the “possible resumption of the game at a later date.”
