Bengals’ owner releases statement on Damar Hamlin, thankful for ‘love and compassion shown by all’

Thoughts and prayers for Buffalo Bills’ safety Damar Hamlin continued to pour in on Tuesday as the second-year pro remains hospitalized following a cardiac arrest during Monday night’s game between the Bills and the Cincinnati Bengals. 

Hamlin collapsed to the field in the first quarter Monday night after delivering a hit on Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins. 

CPR was administered to Hamlin on the field before an ambulance rushed him to the hospital.


The Bills provided an update on Hamlin’s condition Tuesday afternoon, stating that he remains in critical condition at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center after spending the night in intensive care. 

The Bengals’ organization released its own statement on Tuesday, thanking everyone for their “love and compassion” while continuing to send thoughts and prayers to Hamlin and his family.

“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.
