Hamlin plans to attend Bills game after crash: AP source

ORCHARD PARK, New York (AP) — Demar Hamlin, still recovering after suffering a cardiac arrest on the field in Cincinnati two weeks ago, cheered via Twitter from his home Sunday during Buffalo’s home game against the Miami Dolphins.

“My heart goes out to my buddies as they compete today!” Hamlin chirp Less than an hour before kick-off.

“Support from home as I focus on my recovery. I want nothing more than to be there with them!” Hamlin posted, along with a video of himself greeting fans during the Bills’ final game against Miami, which was on Dec. 17.

A person with direct knowledge of the player’s schedule told The Associated Press Sunday that Hamlin plans to attend the game in person. He later said that these “plans may have changed”.

The person spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because Hamlin has kept his schedule and recovery private since he was released from Buffalo Hospital on Wednesday.

Hamlin visited his teammates at Bills Stadium on Saturday But he has not been seen in public since he was rushed off the field in Cincinnati in an ambulance on January 2. He spent more than a week in the hospital, and most of the time was in critical condition.

His occasional tweets during the game on Sunday included a first-half yelling at his replacement, Dean Marlowe, after he intercepted a pass from Miami quarterback Skyler Thompson.

Charged fans were anxious to relive the memory of Hamlin’s collapse, when the 24-year-old from the Pittsburgh suburb of McKees Rocks stood up after a tackle against the Bengals, then fell backwards, landing motionless on the turf at Paycor Stadium.
