Damar Hamlin was discharged from Buffalo General Medical Center Wednesday, January 11.

Hamlin transferred from the University of Cincinnati Academic Health Center to Buffalo Medical Center on Monday and went through a “comprehensive medical evaluation as well as a series of cardiac neurological and vascular testing on Tuesday,” The Buffalo Bills said in a statement.

“We have completed a series of tests and evaluations, and in consultation with the team’s physicians, we are confident that Damar can be safely discharged to continue rehabilitation at home and with the Bills,” Dr. Jamie Nadler, the care team lead for Hamlin, said in a Bills statement.

Hamlin is set to head home nine days after he went into cardiac arrest during a Monday Night Football match vs the Bengals. The safety was rushed to the hospital in Cincinnati to undergo life-saving care. That game was initially postponed before being canceled by the NFL last week.
