ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP)Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin arrived at Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park, New York to support his teammates in their playoff game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Bills hosted the Bengals in the Divisional Round on Sunday, January 22.

Less than an hour before kickoff, the Bills shared a video clip of Hamlin arriving outside Buffalo’s locker room with security.

Hamlin, who went into cardiac arrest during a game three weeks ago, is in attendance at Highmark Stadium for Buffalo’s AFC divisional-round playoff game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, according to the team’s social media.

The Bills posted a video to Instagram and Twitter apparently showing Hamlin arriving at the team’s locker room and the message “Welcome home, Damar.”

Hamlin, 24, has not been seen in public since the Bills and Bengals last met on Jan. 2 in a game that came to an abrupt halt and was eventually canceled after Hamlin’s collapse on the field.

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Hamlin began making regular visits to the team’s facility soon after his release from the hospital in what he described as “dipping his toe back in here and getting on the road to just getting back to himself.”

His presence was enough to uplift his teammates, who after Hamlin’s collapse surrounded him as medical teams who rushed the field used CPR and an automatic external defibrillator (AED) to restart his heart.

The Bills have not disclosed the results of tests Hamlin has undergone to determine why his heart stopped after he was struck in the chest while making what appeared to be a routine tackle.
