Buffalo Bills star quarterback Josh Allen got emotional Thursday as he thanked the medical staff for the quick response to Damar Hamlin’s collapse and for “saving his life.”
Allen, speaking at a press conference in Orchard Park, New York, paused to collect himself as he went through the experience.
“You lose sleep, you hurt your brother,” he said. “Much common suffering.”
“But (receiving) updates and positive updates eases so much of that pain and that tension that you’re feeling,” the quarterback said.
“The scene just plays over and over in your head,” Allen said when asked to reflect on his thoughts during on-field medical attention. “It’s hard to answer that question and actually describe how I felt, how my teammates felt in that moment.”
Allen credited head coach Sean McDermott for the “perfect” reaction in the dressing room and support from his players in the days since Hamlin’s collapse.
