Chilling video of Damar Hamlin talking about Bills teammate Dane Jackson surfaces

As the sports world held out hope for the recovery of Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin, a video of him talking about his teammate and friend Dane Jackson who suffered a scary neck injury earlier in the season.

Hamlin appeared on “One Bills Live” a few weeks ago and talked about Jackson’s injury. The video was shared by Bills legend Andre Reed among other NFL fans across social media.

“I can’t even describe it, but I cherish it every second that I can,” Hamlin says in the clip. “Every second of every day. We just had our prayer, our DB prayer we do every Wednesday. He was next to me and I just grabbed his hand a little bit harder just because you know you never know when your last day could be that you get to experience something like this. I’m cherishing every moment that I can.”

Hamlin and Jackson were teammates at Pittsburgh before both players turned pro. Jackson joined the Bills first in 2020 and Hamlin followed in 2021. Jackson suffered a neck injury in a game in September that caused him to get taken off the field in an ambulance.

The Bills said Hamlin’s “heartbeat was restored on the field and he was transferred to the UC Medical Center for further testing and treatment.”
