UPDATE: Bills’ Hamlin collapses on field, game postponed
The game was suspended for more than 20 minutes before being postponed
UPDATE: The NFL has been postponed the Bills-Bengals game. The game will not resume tonight.
CINCINNATI (AP) — Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin collapsed on the field and was administered CPR before being driven away in an ambulance during Monday night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Hamlin collided with Bengals receiver Tee Higgins after a completion. He got to his feet, appeared to adjust his face mask with his right hand, and then fell backward about three seconds later and lay motionless.
Hamlin was surrounded by stunned players from both teams, and when he was taken off the field 16 minutes later, the Bills gathered in prayer.
The game was suspended 21 minutes after the injury, and players walked off the field.
