The Buffalo Bills released positive news regarding Damar Hamlin on Thursday.

A new tweet by the team on Thursday said that Hamlin has made “remarkable improvement over the past 24 hours,” and that he “appears to be neurologically intact.” They also report that he is making “steady process.”

But that’s not all… according to Bills cornerback Kaair Elam, as well as NFL Network’s Ian Rapaport, Hamlin woke up and was responsive, and even gripped his family members hands that were close to him.

The welcomed information comes just a few days after Hamlin collapsed after making a play during the Bills-Bengals game. The scene was watched by tens of millions of people that tuned into an important game nationally broadcasted on Monday Night Football. Hamlin reportedly received CPR for 9 minutes before being rushed to a local Cincinnati hospital where he was intubated.

The Bills are also reportedly planning to practice today ahead of their Sunday afternoon game against the New England Patriots.

The NFL has not made any official word on when, or even if the Bills-Bengals game will be made up.

OutKick will continue to update any all news regarding Hamlin. We hope there are only more positive updates.
