This Sunday (15), Buffalo Bills running back Damien Harris was taken to the hospital after suffering a neck injury, during the game against the New York Giants.
Harris collided with Giants linebacker Bobby Okere and took a hit. He remained on the ground and the Bills sideline came out to surround him. The game was delayed by five minutes when the ambulance came onto the field.
The running back made a thumbs-up gesture before being placed in the ambulance. The team reported that he has movement in his arms and legs. Coach Sean McDermott said the tests were normal and told reporters “It’s my understanding he has full movement. He is seemingly heading in a good direction, with the reports we are getting”.
Bills’ safety Damar Hamlin, who went into cardiac arrest on the field earlier this year, watched from the sidelines and looked emotional with the situation.
This is Harris first season playing with the team, after signing in free agency. He was playing for the New England Patriots in his first four years.
