Damar Hamlin

I was watching a movie during the Bills/Bengals game so I didn’t hear about what happened with Damar Hamlin until almost an hour afterwards.  I have seen the footage on YouTube and replayed countless times on television and it’s scary to watch.

As opposed to some of the other recent injuries in the NFL, both Damar Hamlin and Tee Higgins did what they were supposed to do.  It was a clean tackle on Hamlin’s part.  To see Hamlin get up and then collapse like that was, again, scary.  My hope is that he’ll be okay.  I have seen so many testaments to this player’s character.

Football is a sport that, rightfully, gets criticized for the lasting damage that it does to its players.  But, again, neither one of the players last night did anything wrong.  They were both playing clean.  When they took Hamlin off the field, both the Bills and the Bengals were on the field praying.  I hope everyone is keeping both players in their thoughts.
