This news comes one day after Hamlin’s doctors at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center held a press conference where they revealed he made “substantial improvement in his condition.”


Hamlin collapsed on the field Monday night after taking a hard hit during a game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He had a cardiac arrest and was administered CPR and AED treatment. Once he was revived, Damar was rushed to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. Because this happened during a nationally televised primetime game, his plight led to an emotional outpouring of prayers and positive thoughts for the 24-year-old player. A massive show of support led to a flood of donations to the GoFundMe for his toy drive, The Chasing M’s, which currently stands at $7.8 million.
