The Buffalo Bills shared an update from Damar Hamlin's physicians, who said he is making "steady progress" towards recovery.
Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin is awake.
Hamlin’s agent Rob Butler said Thursday the NFL player is conscious and “holding hands with family in hospital,” according to CNN.
The announcement came shortly after the Bills shared an update from Hamlin’s physicians, who said he has made “remarkable improvement” over the past 24 hours.
Hamlin’s doctors told CBS that he had the Bills-Bengals game on his mind after waking. They said Hamlin asked if his team won Monday’s game that included his frightening on-field collapse.
The doctors reportedly answered, “Yes, Damar, you’ve won. You’ve won the game of life.”
In a statement shared by the team on Thursday, the Bills revealed that Hamlin, 24, is still critically ill, but appears to be “neurologically intact.”
