We have an update on Bills DB Damar Hamlin’s health.

On Monday night, Hamlin collapsed on the field and was given CPR for 10 minutes before being taken away in an ambulance.

According to initial reports, Hamlin had a pulse but was not breathing on his own.

As of 10:30 pm est, Hamlin’s vitals were back to normal, but he was using a breathing tube to help him breathe, according to one of his reps.

The NFL eventually released a statement on Hamlin after postponing Monday night’s game.

“Hamlin received immediate medical attention on the field by team and independent medical staff and local paramedics,” the league said in a statement. “He was then transported to a local hospital where he is in critical condition.

“Our thoughts are with Damar and the Buffalo Bills. We will provide more information as it becomes available. The NFL has been in constant communication with the NFL Players Association which is in agreement with postponing the game.”
