Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin, whose on-the-field collapse sent shockwaves throughout the sport, will play professional football again, a physician close to the player said Wednesday.

Dr. Thom Mayer, medical director for the NFL Players Association, told SiriusXM’s show “Heart to Heart” that he has no doubts Hamlin will lace up his cleats and be back on the gridiron.

“I don’t want to get into HIPAA issues, but I guarantee you, I guarantee you … that Damar Hamlin will play professional football again,” Mayer told the show.

Hamlin made what seemed to be a routine tackle during “Monday Night Football” on Jan. 2. He appeared to be fine as he stood up, but fell backward again onto the field to the shock of the players and fans.

Hamlin had been playing with the Bills at Cincinnati.

        Let me guess. You’re “fully vaccinated and boosted!”

  1. He plays again he’s done for. Bet your money on that one.

    What almost got him last time was a wake-up call. Even if he quits playing I wouldn’t want to insure his life.
