Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin was discharged from the Buffalo General Medical Center/Gates Vascular Institute on Wednesday, nine days after suffering a cardiac arrest in a game against the Cincinnati Bengals, the team announced.
Hamlin has been at the hospital in Buffalo since Monday after he was released from the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
“We have completed a series of tests and evaluations, and in consultation with the team physicians, we are confident that Damar can be safely discharged to continue his rehabilitation at home and with the Bills,” Dr. Jamie Nadler said in a statement.
“We’re obviously grateful first and foremost that he’s home and with his parents and his brother, which is great,” Bills head coach Sean McDermott told reporters Wednesday. “I’m sure it’s felt like a long time since he’s been able to be home naturally there, and I’m sure it’s a great feeling.”
