A frightening scene in Orchard Park on Sunday Night Football — Buffalo Bills running back Damien Harris, immobilized, was taken off the field in an ambulance after suffering what appears to be a serious injury in the matchup against the Giants. Here’s the latest on what we know.
Harris was down on the ground after a clean hit by Giants linebacker Bobby Okereke on a short run. An ambulance came on the field for him, and the entire team surrounded him. Harris gave a thumbs-up on his way out.
For the Bills organization, it was a traumatic reminder of one of the scariest moments in franchise history when safety Damar Hamlin suffered cardiac arrest on the field last year.
Medics were able to resuscitate Hamlin, and he has since made a full recovery. NBC cameras captured an emotional Hamlin on the sidelines as medical personnel tended to Harris. The ambulance doors had Hamlin jerseys in the window.
