Buffalo Bills safety, Damar Hamlin, has been discharged from the University of Cincinnati Medical Center and has returned to western New York, according to doctors.
Hamlin will now go to a local hospital in Buffalo to continue testing and be monitored, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.
This comes just a week after Hamlin suffered cardiac arrest during the Week 17 Monday Night Football game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

“I can confirm that he is doing well and this is the beginning of the next phase of his recovery,” said Dr. William Knight of UC.
“We remain excited about his recovery,” said Dr. Timothy Pritts.
This comes a day after Hamlin cheered from his hospital bed as the Buffalo Bills defeated the New England Patriots at Orchard Park in front of a raucous home crowd who held up signs wishing him a speedy recovery.
Hamlin tweeted his thoughts on the game, including when fellow defenders caught interceptions and Nyheim Hines returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown.

Hamlin collapsed early in last Monday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals after attacking Bengals receiver Tee Higgins.
He was tended to by members of the Bills training staff, including Denny Kellington – who has been identified as the man who gave Hamlin the necessary CPR.
Hamlin was then taken to UC Medical Center where he was resuscitated and intubated.
Within days, Hamlin was awake, communicating with doctors, and his breathing tube was removed.
He later spoke to his Bills teammates from his hospital bed after they all saw him being carried off the field in an ambulance.
The NFL community spent the weekend honoring Hamlin across the league — with many players wearing jerseys and wishing a speedy recovery.
Late last week, the Bills placed Hamlin on the injured reserve list.

To give back to the hospital that saved his life, Hamlin has launched a line of t-shirts with proceeds going to UC Medical Center.
Hamlin wrote on social media: “We all won. I want to give back a little bit of the love you’ve shown me.
“Proceeds from this shirt go to First Responders and the UC Trauma Center. Go get yours!’
