The details are grey but the overall vibe is good so it’s worth an update.

According to ESPN, Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin had some encouraging news overnight. The specifics are not given, but Hamlin’s family friend Jordon Rooney, who had previously provided updates since Monday gave another.

That one with the former world-wide leader states that doctors “got promising readings overnight.” Here’s the full update:

Most recently on Tuesday evening, a positive step in Hamlin’s progress was announced by Hamlin’s uncle. According to him, Hamlin was still intubated but the oxygen level the 24-year-old is receiving is now at a rate of 50 percent assistance. That’s down from 100 percent when he originally arrived at the hospital, which is a sign of improved breathing.

That does not mean Hamlin is fully recovered as he still has a ways to go, but any positive news is welcomed.

The 24-year-old was stated to be in critical condition originally after he suffered cardiac arrest on Monday during a NFL game against the Cincinnati Bengals, Hamlin’s road to recovery continues UC Medical Center in Cincy.
