Sadly, Monday Night Football was like no other tonight.

Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin collapsed on the field mid-game after making a tackle. The traumatic incident occurred during the first quarter while playing against the Cincinnati Bengals on January 2.

The 24-year-old received immediate medical attention and CPR was administered on the field prior to being rushed to the hospital by ambulance. It was later announced by the NFL that Hamlin was in critical condition.

Here is the official statement released by the NFL:

Tonight’s Buffalo Bills-Cincinnati Bengals game has been postponed after Buffalo Bills’ Damar Hamlin collapsed, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced.

Hamlin received immediate medical attention on the field by team and independent medical staff and local paramedics. He was then transported to a local hospital where he is in critical condition.

Our thoughts are with Damar and the Buffalo Bills. We will provide more information as it becomes available.

The NFL has been in constant communication with the NFL Players Association which is in agreement with postponing the game.

Hamlin’s fellow NFL players, coaches, and fans, among many others, are sending their support to him and the Bills Mafia. The game was suspended and will be rescheduled for a later date.
