It certainly was one of the most frightening moments in sports in recent memory, but it's thankfully had a good ending, and it's about to get better. 

As you may remember, Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin was in critical condition after the scary incident that took place in early January on Monday Night Football in which he collapsed after undergoing cardiac arrest; he required CPR and the use of an AED to resume his heart rhythm before he was rushed via ambulance to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

He's been on the road to recovery since then, and there's been a major announcement -  he's been fully cleared to resume football activities. 

"He is fully cleared. He's here," Bills general manager Brandon Beane told reporters in a pre-draft press conference Tuesday. "He's in a great headspace to come back and make his return."

And Hamlin himself plans on getting back out on the field: 

"My heart is still in the game. I love the game," Hamlin said, adding he wants to show he can get back on the field. "It's something I want to prove to myself, not nobody else."

He continued, "I just want to show people that fear is a choice, that you can keep going at something without knowing the answers, without knowing what's at the end of tunnel."
