Call it a miracle, but Damar Hamlin is already talking about returning to the NFL for the upcoming season. During a Tuesday news conference, the Buffalo Bills safety said that doctors cleared him to take to the field again, and that’s exactly what he’s going to do.
Last January 2nd, during a game with the Bengals, he suffered what’s called commotio cordis, a blow to the chest at a precise moment during the heartbeat that causes cardiac arrest. Medics administered CPR to restart his heart. He was finally released from the hospital on January 11.
