Were you watching the Bengals/Bills game last night? It was horrifying when Bills’ Safety Damar Hamlin collapsed and received CPR on the field.

I cannot imagine how horrible it was for all of the players, coaches, trainers, officials, reporters, and first responders. There is a lot of speculation that to NFL was going to give the players a five minute warm up and have them get back to the game. It hasn’t been confirmed, but is protocol after an injury. There is no way those players would have been able to do that and while waiting for official word, it sounds like the coaches, Sean McDermott and Zac Taylor decided to send their players back to the locker room and not continue.

I also don’t know how the broadcast continued. I know people want updates, but ABC and ESPN could’ve cut to some reruns and broke in for updates as they had them. Scott Van Pelt and Ryan Clark did a good job in such a horrible situation. To keep the show on the air for so long rehashing what happened had to be excruciating.

I pray that Hamlin is okay and has a smooth recovery.
