Damar Hamlin asked about Bills’ game result after waking up, doctors say

Doctors at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center said Thursday that Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin has made “substantial progress” in the last 24 hours, so much so that he was able to ask medical staff “who won?” Monday night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Officials with the hospital gave an update on Hamlin’s condition during a press conference on Thursday afternoon and noted that while he is still not able to speak, he has been communicating with his writing.
