Damar Hamlin, a Buffalo Bills safety, joined his teammates on Sunday ahead of their playoff game against the Cincinnati Bengals, the team against whom he collapsed on national television.
The Bills tweeted a video of Hamlin riding in a cart inside Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park, New York, with the caption “Welcome home.”
Before the Bills-Bengals playoff game, Hamlin was seen entering the locker room. He was dressed casually when he was seen leaving the dressing room and taking an elevator up to a suite.
The visiting Bengals took control early and went on to win 27-10. They will face the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl.
After the game on Sunday night, Hamlin told Bills fans to stay positive and that better days are ahead.
Football fans across the country have applauded Hamlin’s recovery.
On “Monday Night Football” on Jan. 2, Buffalo was playing at Cincinnati when Hamlin appeared to make a routine tackle on Bengals receiver Tee Higgins. After rising from the tackle, Hamlin appeared to go limp and fall backward.
Trainers and medical personnel rushed onto the field to treat Hamlin, who may have suffered from commotio cordis, a rare condition in which a blunt force to the chest causes a healthy heart to stop beating for a brief period of time during the cardiac cycle.
