Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamlin just collapsed on the field and now the NFL teams are wondering if he survived.
Moments ago Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamlin was carted off the field in the Monday Night Football game after dropping backward on the field after making a tackle.
This seems like a vasovagal syncope phenomenon where a stressful trigger leads to a sudden drop in HR and BP. pic.twitter.com/Ozw9vxtNi8

Currently, Buffalo star safety Damar Hamlin was on the field in the game. He made a tackle and then stood up. The 24-year-old star then fell backwards on his back. At first there was concerns that he was injured. Then there were concerns that there was a head injury. Then there were concerns whether he was going to make it.
Those watching the game couldn’t believe what was happening.
An ambulance then came and eventually took him off the field.
Hamlin was taken to the local hospital – He reportedly was not breathing on his own.
Damar Hamlin’s agent Jordan Rooney released a statement at 10:30 PM on Damar Hamlin.
Hamlim Was Put to Sleep to Insert Breathing Tube – VITALS REPORTEDLY BACK TO NORMAL
Update on Damar:
His vitals are back to normal and they have put him to sleep to put a breathing tube down his throat. They are currently running tests.

Prayers for Damar Hamlin.
The Bills team is flying back to Buffalo.
Obviously, there are people from the organization who will stay with Damar and the family. https://t.co/eSiOy68yEN
