Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin posted several times on social media Sunday while watching the Bills beat the New England Patriots, 35-23, in Orchard Park, New York.
Hamlin has been at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center since his collapse against the Cincinnati Bengals Monday at Paycor Stadium. Doctors say he suffered a cardiac arrest on the field and needed both CPR and defibrillation by team doctors.
The Bills said Hamlin is making continued progress in his recovery but remains in critical condition, in a post on the team’s social media account.
“He continues to breathe on his own and his neurological function is excellent,” the team said.

Hamlin said on his official Instagram account before the Bills game Sunday against the Patriots that he wishes he could be on the field with his teammates.
“It’s GameDay & there’s nothing I want more than to be running out that tunnel with my brothers.. God using me in a different way today! Tell someone you love them today! #prayfor3,” the post reads.
He also wrote, “GAMETIME @Buffalobills,” on his Twitter account.
Hamlin was rooting his teammates on cheering for them every time the Bills made a big play.
After the Bills won, he said he wanted to give back to first responders and the UC Trauma Center.
“We all won,” Hamlin wrote. “I want to give back an ounce of the love y’all showed me. Proceeds of this shirt will go to first-responders and the UC Trauma Center. Go get yours!
