Damar Hamlin has the green light to throw on his helmet and shoulder pads once again — the Bills safety is “fully cleared” to resume his football career just three and a half months after suffering cardiac arrest during a game, Brandon Beane announced Tuesday.
The Buffalo general manager shared the incredible update just minutes ago … saying Hamlin’s team of specialists are “in agreement” that he is able to resume his football career.
In fact, Beane says Hamlin has been working out lately — just like any other athlete would after going down with an injury.
“He’s fully cleared,” Beane told reporters. “He’s here, and he is of the mindset, he’s in a great headspace to come back and make his return.”
Hamlin hasn’t played since his medical emergency during “Monday Night Football” on Jan. 2 … and has used his near-death experience to spread awareness for CPR training and AED accessibility.
Back in February, Hamlin announced his intentions to return to the field in an interview with Michael Strahan … saying, “That’s always the goal, like I said, as a competitor, I’m trying to do things to keep advancing my situation.”
“Bu, I’m allowing that to be in God’s hands. I’m just thankful he gave me a second chance.”
Bills coach Sean McDermott also addressed the news … adding, “Super excited for Damar. He’s moving forward one step at a time. We’ll provide all the mental health we can. Just taking it one day at a time.”
