Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin has been released from the hospital after suffering a cardiac arrest.

“Headed home to Buffalo today with a lot of love on my heart,” Hamlin said in a statement on Twitter. “Watching the world come together around me on Sunday was truly an amazing feeling. The same love you all have shown me is the same love that I plan to put back into the world n more. Bigger than football!”

In a follow up tweet, the 24-year-old added, “Grateful for the awesome care I received at UCMC. Happy to be back in Buffalo. The docs and nurses at Buffalo General have already made me feel at home!”

As previously reported by HOT 97, last Monday (Jan. 2), Hamlin was rushed into intensive care after he suffered a cardiac arrest on the field while playing against the Cincinnati Bengals. According to Dr. William Knight IV, the football player walked his first lap around the hospital on Friday (Jan. 6).

“Damar walked his first lap around the hospital on Friday and he’s on a normal to accelerated trajectory,” the emergency medicine physician said in a statement. “We continue to be ecstatic about his recovery.”
