Only sixteen days after suffering cardiac arrest during a Monday night game in Cincinnati, Bills safety Damar Hamlin continues to make amazing progress.

Via Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com, coach Sean McDermott told reporters on Wednesday that Hamlin is visiting the team’s facility “almost daily.”

“It’s limited, just overall,” McDermott said regarding Hamlin’s activities. “But he comes in and really just started really today or yesterday and just trying to get back to a little bit of a routine and just get himself acclimated again and taking it one step, one baby step at a time here.”

Hamlin isn’t attending meetings. McDermott said Hamlin is “dipping his toe back in here and you know, getting on the road to just getting back to himself.”

After visiting the team on Saturday, Hamlin didn’t attend last Sunday’s playoff game against the Dolphins. It remains to be seen whether Hamlin will be present for this Sunday’s postseason showdown with the Bengals.

    Canceling that game turned out to be one of the biggest shams in football history.

    How? A player freaking died on the field the second to last week of the season. Neither team wanted to finish that game and there wasn’t enough time to reschedule. I think they should have left the rules alone but completely understand not being able to play the game.

  3. No class Bengal fans are ruining the reputation of the majority of the fanbase.

  4. He’s probably lobbying to play. Thankfully he’s alive. They gotta figure out what happened first,… and why.

  5. Chris Pronger of the NHL (Anaheim Ducks) had the same incident and returned 2 days later and play a full career as a HOFer. Lets not make this more than it should be.

    Guy nearly dies during an NFL game and just over two weeks later is back with his team but because someone else faired differently we shouldn’t celebrate it. K.

    Go Bills

    Nobody died. He would have died but he received medical attention. Once dead, you do not come back. Death is the absence of brain activity.

  8. Amazingly it sounds like the coach is implying there is some chance he could play again at some point. Doesn’t sound like the best idea if true no matter how long from now.
