Damar Hamlin out of hospital, back in Buffalo

Chris Simms and Ahmed Fareed unpack the special closeness of the Buffalo Bills that allowed the team to come together and defeat the New England Patriots to clinch the No. 2 seed in the AFC following an emotional week.

Monday brought another big step in Bills safety Damar Hamlin’s recovery from last week’s cardiac arrest.

Doctors at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center said at a Monday press conference that Hamlin has been released from the hospital. He returned home to Buffalo on a flight earlier in the day.

The doctors said that Hamlin had been walking around the hospital before his release and that he will continue his recovery under the care of doctors in Buffalo. They said they were “ecstatic” about the pace and extent of Hamlin’s recovery over less than a week.

One would imagine that there’s a good chance Hamlin will be in attendance for next weekend’s Wild Card game against the Dolphins and that would make for another emotional moment at Highmark Stadium after a Sunday filled with them during the win over the Patriots.
