Damar Hamlin continues to ease back into his life and follow medical advice as the 24-year-old safety has not waned on his desire to return to the NFL.
After he suffered a cardiac arrest in a Jan. 2 game against the Cincinnati Bengals, Hamlin has received an outpour of support.
General manager Brandon Beane told reporters Thursday he recently met with Hamlin, per ESPN’s Alaina Getzenberg. He said the safety had one more doctor visit lined up, but his status was “trending in the right direction.”
Hamlin revealed to Beane he still intends to play in the NFL for what would be his third season in the league.
“We’ll get him through all (medical consultations) and then we’ll make sure all of our medical people are hearing all those opinions on each visit and make sure that we’re all on the same page of what it would look like,” Beane said.
The hope for fans is Hamlin’s well-being is taken care of, and if he does play, it is after vigorous vetting and there is no danger to his health.
