Damar Hamlin appears to have returned to the Buffalo Bills camp, meeting his teammates for the first time since suffering cardiac arrest earlier this month.
Linebacker Matt Milano shared a picture of Hamlin at the team’s base in his own clothes on Instagram, 12 days after falling ill during his team’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
While Milano’s post wasn’t directly clear that the picture was taken today, said ESPN Hamlin had “reunited with his teammates”.
It comes one day before the Bills face the Miami Dolphins in the NFL playoffs. Hamlin, 24, was discharged from hospital on Wednesday.

“Hamlin was admitted on Monday and underwent a comprehensive medical evaluation and a battery of cardiac, neurological and vascular tests on Tuesday.
Jamie Nadler, MD, Kaleida Health’s critical care physician and chief quality officer and the leader of the care team for Hamlin, said, “We have conducted a number of tests and assessments and after consulting with the team physicians, we are confident that Damar can safely.” be released to continue his rehabilitation at home and with the Bills.’
Hamlin updated his progress on Tuesday afternoon, revealing he was undergoing and passing medical tests.
“Not quite home yet,” Hamlin said on his Twitter profile.
“I’m still doing and passing a lot of tests. Special thanks to Buffalo General, it’s been nothing but love since arrival! Please keep me in your prayers! #3strong.’
Hamlin was transferred from the University of Cincinnati Medical Center to the Buffalo facility on Monday.
“I drove home to Buffalo today with a lot of love in my heart,” wrote the Bills security man.
“Seeing the world come together around me on Sunday was really an amazing feeling. The same love you all showed me is the same love I want to bring back into the world. Bigger than football!
“Grateful for the great care I received at UCMC. I’m glad to be back in Buffalo. The doctors and nurses at Buffalo General have already made me feel right at home!’
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.
The Bills player, who has also set up charity toy drives to raise money for his local community, had tackled Bengals receiver Tee Higgins in the first quarter of Monday night’s crucial game on January 2 and got up just before he fell backwards to the ground and lay motionless.
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.
Higgins led the congratulations for the young player, tweeting that he was “praying Hamlin pulls through” as Hamlin was in critical condition at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
