Evangelist Franklin Graham tweeted, “My thoughts and prayers are with [Buffalo Bills] safety Damar Hamlin. Like millions of Americans, I was watching Monday night football when Damar collapsed and an ambulance came on the field. Join me in praying for this young man.”

Fox News reported that the game was delayed for about 20 minutes before the NFL announced that it was temporarily suspended.

The Bills issued an update early Tuesday morning saying that Hamlin’s “heartbeat was restored on the field and he was transferred to the [University of Cincinnati] Medical Center for further testing and treatment. He is currently sedated and listed in critical condition.”

The NFL issued a statement from Hamlin’s family early Tuesday afternoon.

“On behalf of our family, we want to express our sincere gratitude for the love and support shown to Damar during this challenging time,” they said. “We are deeply moved by the prayers, kinds words, and donations from fans around the country.”

“Please keep Damar in your prayers,” the Hamlin family added.

Jill Kelly, the wife of Hall of Fame Bills quarterback Jim Kelly, encouraged people to pray together on Tuesday at 3 p.m. Eastern Time for Hamlin, who wears No. 3.
