Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin collapsed while playing the Cincinnati Bengals during Monday night football.

Hamlin made a tackle on Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins with 5:58 remaining on the clock in the first quarter. Hamlin got up seemingly fine from the mild tackle, then stepped back and collapsed.

Medical personnel rushed onto the field at Paycor Stadium and loaded Hamlin onto a backboard and stretcher. According to Fox News, medical personnel was giving Hamlin CPR. ESPN reported that he was given oxygen.

A few minutes later an ambulance was spotted on the field which took him to the hospital.

Bills coach Sean McDermott, quarterback Josh Allen and wide receiver Stefon Diggs were seen getting very emotional over Hamlin’s condition as the stadium crowd went quiet, and the entire Bills team was out on the field.

Some of the players were seen praying, while others according to ESPN "...had to turn their backs to not watch Hamlin in distress."

The game was suspended at first, and the teams went back inside their respective locker rooms. It was later announced that the game was postponed and would not be resumed on Monday night.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
