Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest following the hit from an open-field tackle on Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins. He was transferred to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center for further testing and treatment, where he remains sedated. 

On Tuesday night, Hamlin’s uncle, Dorrian Glenn said that his status has improved but the 24-year-old remains in intensive care. His condition has improved to 50 percent oxygen on a ventilator from the time he was relying fully on the life-saving equipment.

Although his nephew is sedated, Glenn seemed optimistic about the athlete’s health. 

“Right now, they got him on a ventilator, so they’re trying to get him to breathe on his own,” Glenn told the network. “So, we’re just kind of taking it day by day. Still in the ICU. They have him sedated, so just continue to administer the medical treatment that they’ve been doing.” Glenn added, “Once he gets out of ICU, I’ll feel better myself.”

“I’m really, really thankful for the medical staff that’s been working with him,” Glenn said of the tragic events. “They’ve been truly awesome and helping him with his recovery. It was a really, truly scary scene to witness that yesterday, as everyone in the country probably can agree with. I would have felt the way I felt no matter who it was, but for it to be my nephew, man, it was especially more of a gut punch to see that. I’m thankful that he’s still here, he’s still alive, and he’s still fighting. We’re just taking it day by day and continue to let the medical staff do what they do.”
