The Buffalo Bills are set to kick off their season against the Jets on Monday Night Football and it looks like one player won't suit up for the Bills.


This would have been Hamlin's first regular season game since his injury on Monday Night Football against the Bengals last season.

Hamlin had played in all three of the Bills pre-season games and is currently listed as the backup strong safety behind Jordan Poyer.

Hamlin went into cardiac arrest on the field after making a tackle last season and doctors concluded that he suffered a specific type of cardiac arrest, commotio cordis, which is "an extremely rare consequence of blunt force trauma to the heart that happens at exactly the wrong time in the heart rhythm, causing the heart to stop beating effectively," according to the American Heart Association.
