Buffalo Bills Statement: Safety Damar Hamlin Showing 'Signs Of Improvement', Remains In Critical Condition

Damar Hamlin is making progress. And that's not a rumor or second hand, but rather from the Buffalo Bills directly.

The NFL team tweeted its 1.5 million followers moments ago that their safety's health is improving. Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest attack during Monday night's football game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

This is in line with what family and friends have told the press in the past 24 hours.

The NFL on a national conference call said it would not be providing medical updates on Hamlin but executive vice president for football operations did say something that will be very important to the Hamlin family:

Although Hamlin is not a vested player thus not entitled to the life benefits NFL players who are vested get upon retirement, Vincent said the NFL will provide "everything" Hamlin needs going forward in his life.

"Obviously, situations like this we expect, God willing, that he would recover," said NFL executive vice president for football operations Troy Vincent said Wednesday. "But he will get the resources necessary to make sure he has what he needs to make sure he has a complete life."
