Hamlin incurred the terrible injury in the first quarter when he clashed with the Bengals receiver Tee Higgins. Although, the Bills safety looked unfazed and quickly got up. However, he immediately collapsed on the ground and wasn’t responding for a few minutes.

The medical personnel administered CPR and immediately called for an ambulance, which took him to the nearest hospital while being under strict supervision from the doctors.

Many are currently praying for Hamlin, who was known to do a lot for the people and even started a charity for kids called the Toy Drive. The 24-year-old Bills safety had a tough childhood as his parents were just 16 when he was born. His parents did everything they could to give him the best life and the Bills’ safety was always aware of that.

Hamlin started the GoFundMe Toy Drive way back in 2020 to provide toys and gifts for children and positively impact the surrounding community. “As I embark on my journey to the NFL, I will never forget where I come from and I am committed to using my platform to positively impact the community that raised me.” Hamlin stated after starting the charity.
