The Green Bay Packers will honor Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin in Week 18 with a subtle change to the playing surface at Lambeau Field.

The team has outlined the number “3” in blue at the 30-yard line to celebrate Hamlin, who collapsed on the field on Monday night and needed life-saving treatment in Cincinnati. Hamlin wears No. 3 for the Bills.

The emergency medical situation sent shockwaves across the NFL, including through Green Bay.

The league encouraged teams to honor Hamlin this weekend in a variety of ways. The Packers may offer a pre-game “moment of support” before Sunday night’s kickoff with the Detroit Lions, and all players will have the option to wear black Nike shirts during pre-game warmups that read “Love for Damar 3.”

Hamlin remains hospitalized but has shown steady progress this week. On Saturday, Hamlin posted this update from his official Instagram account:
