ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Damar Hamlin stood on the field at Highmark Stadium, barefoot, and just looked ahead.

For the first time since suffering cardiac arrest on Jan. 2, Hamlin was preparing to play in a regular-season football game.

Around an hour and a half later, the Bills were announced out of the tunnel, with Hamlin the last player out. He ran all the way to the other end of the field, sticking out his arms as he got closer to the goal line. Jumping into the end zone, Hamlin took off his helmet and dropped it as he shouted with the Bills fans who filled the stands.
