Buffalo Bills’ Damar Hamlin released from the hospital

(NBC, KYMA/KECY) - Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamlin has left the hospital. The team announced the news on social media Wednesday.

According to the statement, medical staff released Hamlin, who's heart stopped on the field in Cincinnati nine days ago, from Buffalo General following a "comprehensive medical evaluation as well as a series of cardiac, neurological and vascular testing on Tuesday."

Hamlin's doctors say they are confident he can "continue his rehabilitation at home and with the Bills."

Hamlin has been the focus of an outpouring of support from football fans across the country. The support came after suffering cardiac arrest while playing the Bengals on Monday Night Football.

His GoFundMe drive for a toy charity is now over $8.7 million.

Hamlin has now also applied for trademarks for the phrases: "Did we win" and "Three is back."
