Damar Hamlin – latest: Buffalo Bills star’s family shares new injury update following on-field cardiac arrest

According to his family, NFL player Damar Hamlin’s health is “going upwards,” and things are moving in a “good direction” after experiencing cardiac arrest on the field during a game on Monday night.

After collapsing to the ground after making a tackle on Cincinnati Bengals receiver Tee Higgins and being treated by first responders, the Buffalo Bills player remains in critical condition in the hospital.

Dorrian Glenn, Hamlin’s uncle, told CNN on Tuesday evening that his nephew needed to be resuscitated twice. Still, family friend and Hamlin’s marketing representative Jordon Rooney addressed those remarks on Wednesday, claiming Glenn misspoke and the safety was only resuscitated once.
