Buffalo Bills to Practice for First Time Since Safety Hamlin's Injury

The Buffalo Bills will attempt to return to normalcy following the tragic injury to safety Darren Hamlin on Monday Night Football's showdown with the Cincinnati Bengals. The team will resume practice today in order to prepare for Sunday's season finale against the New England Patriots.

Hamlin entered cardiac arrest in the first quarter of Monday's game. He was resuscitated on the field and rushed to a nearby hospital. He remains in the ICU and in critical condition.

Bills players will likely speak for the first time about the incident with the media later today and will be forced to proceed with business as usual. They'll need to win on Sunday if they're to have a chance of preserving their top seed in the AFC. 

The NFL has yet to share plans to resume Bills/Bengals. If the game is eventually ruled a no-contest, the Bills may lose their hold on home-field advantage and a bye. If seeding is eventually decided by winning percentage, the Kansas City Chiefs would likely finish at the top of the standings and earn all the top seed's many benefits.
