Hamlin, 24, was put in a medically induced coma at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center following the incident.

The Bills also tweeted a statement Thursday saying Hamlin has shown “remarkable improvement.”

“Damar has shown remarkable improvement over the past 24 hours. While still critically ill, he has demonstrated that he appears to be neurologically intact.”

On Tuesday, the NFL said that the Bills-Bengals game would not resume this week. They have since said they are weighing all options regarding the game.

Since the incident, Hamlin’s Chasing M’s Foundation, initially established to support a toy drive in Hamlin’s community of McKees Rocks, Pa., has received over $7 million in donations.
