Buffalo Bills Defensive back Damar Hamlin suffered a serious injury during the first quarter of the Buffalo-Cincinnati game. The game is part of the week 17 Monday Night Football Showdown, which was suspended. Hamlin was seen walking the field after he tried to get up from a collision with Bengals receiver Tee Higgins, but quickly collapse a few seconds after. Medical personnel worked on the football player for several minutes, who was unresponsive. He fell to the ground around 8:56 p.m.ย 

A stretcher and an ambulance came onto the field as most of the players went off to the sideline to kneel and stand around Hamlin. Several Bills players could be seen crying as Hamlin was quickly tended to by medical professionals, other players were seen holding hands.
