One Buffalo Bills fan at the hospital, who goes by Jason or “Dia Billo”, told Fox News Digital he traveled to the game from San Antonio, Texas and was sitting in the first row.  

“I just saw a player collapse,” Jason said. “It didn’t look right. It was a shock everyone trying to figure out who it was, what player it was. After that it was just silence.”

The Bills selected Hamlin with the No. 212 overall pick in the sixth round of the 2021 draft. He played in 14 games last season – mostly on special teams – in his rookie season.
