The Bills safety Damar Hamlin, who shocked the NFL world three weeks ago, continues to make headlines as the youngster is undergoing a lengthy rehabilitation. Although he got discharged from the hospital, his health remains under close scrutiny. Recently, his family spokesperson gave the latest update on the situation.

On January 2, this year, while facing the Bengals in a regular season game, Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest. He was admitted to the Buffalo General Medical Center.

Recently, his longtime friend and marketing representative Jordon Rooney mentioned that Hamlin still requires an external oxygen supply. His heart condition is monitored to avoid further repercussions. “Despite being out of the hospital, Damar still has a lengthy recovery,” Rooney said in his statement, via ESPN.

“Damar still requires oxygen and is having his heart monitored regularly. He visited with the team a few times but he still gets winded very easily. He’s upbeat and positive and ready to continue to overcome this,” he added. Interestingly, this revelation came just a day after Bills coach Sean McDermott claimed that the safety visited the team facility and interacted with the staff.

“It’s limited, just overall,” McDermott said of Hamlin. “But he comes in and really just started really today or yesterday and just trying to get back to a little bit of a routine and just get himself acclimated again and taking it one step, one baby step at a time here,” he added.
