Damar Hamlin cleared for football activity (no mention of Bill Belichick being a scumbag)

Recommended Posts


been cleared to resume football activities, said Tuesday his cardiac arrest during an NFL game in January was caused by commotio cordis.

Hamlin went into cardiac arrest after making a tackle and appearing to be hit with a helmet in his chest during the first quarter of the Bills’ game against the Cincinnati Bengals on January 2.

Commotio cordis can occur when severe trauma to the chest disrupts the heart’s electrical charge and causes dangerous fibrillations.

Ad feedback

“I died on national TV in front of the whole world,” Hamlin said in his first session with reporters since the injury. “I lost a bunch of people in my life. I know a bunch of people who lost people in their lives. I know that feeling. That right there is the biggest blessing of it all – for me to still have my people and my people to still have me.”

The 25-year-old has been at the Bills’ practice facility in Orchard Park, New York, participating in voluntary offseason workouts this week, according to the team.

“He is fully cleared,” Bills General Manager Brandon Beane told reporters. “He’s here.”

Hamlin said he was blessed to have a wonderful medical staff who “treat me with the care of their children.”

The safety said his heart is still in the game and he was announcing his comeback to the NFL.

“I just want to show people that fear is a choice. You can keep going at something without having the answers and without knowing what’s at the end of the tunnel,” he said. “You might feel anxious – you might feel any type of way – but you just keep putting that right foot in front of the left one and you keep going. I want to stand for that.”

good luck to the kid.

It being like a 100 million to 1 shot and leaving millions of dollars on the table likely contribute to such a decision.

Honestly I have no clue about this injury or whatever you want to call it and if the chances of it happening again increase after the first time. 

He’s not some star player making boatloads of money. He can probably make money giving talks to college teams etc yearly because of this now
