The initial injury report ahead of Week 18 at Highmark Stadium.

The Buffalo Bills began preparations for the New England Patriots with meetings and a walkthrough on Wednesday, and with an update on the status of 24-year-old safety Damar Hamlin.

“Damar remains in the ICU in critical condition with signs of improvement noted yesterday and overnight,” the organization shared on Twitter. “He is expected to remain under intensive care as his health care team continues to monitor and treat him.”

Hamlin, a 2021 sixth-round draft choice out of the University of Pittsburgh, collapsed on-field after suffering a cardiac arrest in the first quarter of Monday night’s suspended game versus the Cincinnati Bengals. Medical personnel administered CPR, oxygen and an automated external defibrillator, or AED, to restore his heartbeat before transporting him by ambulance to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

The Patriots, in conjunction with the Bills, cancelled consecutive days of media availability before also returning to practice.

The AFC East finale remains scheduled for 1 p.m. ET Sunday at Highmark Stadium. Below is its initial injury report.
