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.

I want to know the cause ???
It was the hit he received, in the chest, messed up his electrical signals to his heart.
Exactly and if you don’t get them back good bye.
Really? Are you certain of that? Because the treating physicians have not even come out to list commotio cordis as the cause. Not to mention that individuals who suffer from commotio cordis have underlying heart problems to begin with. Questionable as to why someone with an underlying heart issue would be green lighted for play.
Gee, you think we’d have seen that happen more than once in the last how many decades of pro football….
Let me guess. You’re “fully vaccinated and boosted!”
Not buying this
I’d hate to be the doctor to give the okay to play! Heavy weight to carry around.
If I were him I’d hang them up.
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.
