Hamlin went into cardiac arrest after a tackle during Monday nightโ€™s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Medical professionals rushed onto the field and performed CPR.

An automated external defibrillator was used to resuscitate Hamlin. He was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where he was intubated and sedated.

Doctors said Hamlin opened his eyes Thursday, communicating with written messages. The first question he asked was, โ€œwho won the game?โ€

Hamlin remains at UCMC. Doctors said he is making a fairly remarkable recovery.

On Saturday, the Bills went on to win the game 35-23.
