Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin, who has made remarkable progress in his recovery from an on-field cardiac arrest incident vs. the Cincinnati Bengals, was honored as the 2023 winner of the NFL Players’ Association’s Alan Page Community Service Award.

Today’s edition of Buffalo Rumblinks leads off by recapping Hamlin’s comments during the nationally-televised NFL Honors show, including how Hamlin feels that “every day, I am amazed that my experiences could encourage so many others across the country and even across the world. Encourage to pray, to spread love, and to keep fighting, no matter the circumstances.”
