Last week, Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin suffered a terrifying health concern when he went into cardiac arrest and needed CPR on the field to save his life. After what was deemed a “remarkable recovery,” was discharged from his initial hospital a week later and sent back to Buffalo. And now, he’s being sent home entirely.

On Wednesday morning, the Buffalo Bills announced that Damar Hamlin had been discharged from the hospital and was allowed to return home.

“Damar Hamlin has been discharged from Buffalo General Medical Center/Gates Vascular Institute, a Kaleida Health facility in Buffalo, NY. Hamlin was admitted on Monday and went through a comprehensive medical evaluation as well as a series of cardiac neurological and vascular testing on Tuesday,” the Buffalo Bills said in a statement.

Jamie Nadler, one of Hamlin’s doctors and the Chief Quality Officer at Kaleida Health, said that after a series of tests, the hospital was confident it was safe for Hamlin to be discharged.

“We have completed a series of tests and evaluations and in consultation with the team physicians, we are confident that Damar can be safely discharged to continue his rehabilitation at home and with the Bills,” Nadler said regarding Hamlin’s release.

It’s an absolutely massive update after a very scary situation.
