Biden Spoke with Family of Critically Injured NFL Player Damar Hamlin

HeadlineJan 05, 2023

President Biden spoke with the family of hospitalized NFL player Damar Hamlin in Cincinnati Wednesday, after the Buffalo Bills player suffered a cardiac arrest on the field during a game Monday. Hamlin remains in critical condition in an ICU at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center but the Bills said he is showing “signs of improvement.” On Wednesday, President Biden was asked by a reporter if the NFL was getting “too dangerous.”

President Joe Biden: “I don’t know how you avoid it. I think working like hell on the helmets and the concussion protocols, that all makes a lot of sense. But it’s — you know, it is dangerous, and we’ve got to just acknowledge it.”
