KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs join other NFL football fans waiting for an update on the condition of Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin.
About nine minutes into Monday Night Football, Hamlin tackled Bengals receiver Tee Higgins and then collapsed on the field at Paycor Stadium in Cincinnati.
Hamlin’s family released a statement Tuesday, thanking fans for the outpouring of support.
The Chiefs are also sending prayers and support to Hamlin and the Bills.
The team is practicing at the Chiefs facility as scheduled Tuesday, but canceled the media availability with head coach Andy Reid and quarterback Patrick Mahomes Tuesday afternoon.
