Although the NFL has announced they don’t intend to resume the suspended Bills-Bengals game, they will play a regular slate this weekend.

And they’ve announced a series of ways teams can choose to show their support for Hamlin throughout the weekend.

Teams will have a moment of silence for Hamlin before the national anthem, with a statement of “support and love.”

They’ll also be able to outline the “3” in the 30-yard markers, specifically in the Bills red or blue colors.

Special warm-up shirts will be made with a “Love for Damar 3” message. The Bills in particular will also have slightly different shirts and jersey patches.

These tributes are a great way to ensure that every team and all the league’s fans can show their support.

The Bills will almost certainly have further tributes, especially considering the game is at home in Buffalo.

Hopefully the news on Hamlin’s recovery continues to be positive and encouraging as the games get underway.
