While Damar Hamlin is on injured reserve, the Buffalo Bills will pay his whole salary, Report say.

According to reports, the Buffalo Bills have decided to honor the NFL contract of safety Damar Hamlin.

The world was shocked when Hamlin collapsed on the football field during a game against the Bengals with less than six minutes on the clock.

At the time, Hamlin’s fate was unclear but the days following have shown promise of what appears to be a miracle when it was revealed he was “neurologically intact” and showing “remarkable improvement.”

On Jan. 7, Hamlin’s breathing tube was removed at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center and he was in communication with his teammates by Friday.

Then, on Jan. 8, it had been reported that the Buffalo Bills would still pay his full salary under his four-year $3.64 million contract.

“Bills S Damar Hamlin’s 4-year, $3.64M contract contains a standard split to pay him at a lower rate if he lands on Injured Reserve. This week, he was placed on IR. However, sources say Buffalo has worked out an agreement with the NFL and NFLPA to pay him in full,” sportswriter Ian Rapoport wrote on Twitter.

As AfroTech previously told you, Hamlin’s jersey is the most-purchased on Fanatics, and proceeds will be donated to his foundation, Chasing M’s.

“Damar still has the most purchased jersey among all athletes across all sports on Fanatics since Monday night,” a spokesperson for Fanatics said, according to reports.

In addition, over $8 million has been raised through a GoFundMe account created to support the foundation as well.

“This fundraiser was initially established to support a toy drive for Damar’s community, sponsored by the Chasing M’s Foundation,” a message from the campaign read. “However, it has received renewed support in light of Damar’s current battle and we can’t thank all of you enough. Your generosity and compassion mean the world to us.”

“Putting love into the world comes back 3xs as much… thankful for everyone who has reached out and prayed. This will make me stronger on the road to recovery, keep praying for me,” Hamlin wrote on Twitter.

In addition, The Buffalo Bills also shared an update via Twitter on Hamlin’s wellbeing.

“We are thrilled and proud to share that Damar Hamlin had been released from the hospital and returned to Buffalo,” UC Medical Center said in a statement. “He is doing well and this is the next stage of his recovery.”
