It also said that responding to his injury will make Hamlin stronger. The tweet was followed by a heart-shaped emoji and a “3”.

Bringing love into the world comes back three times as much… grateful to everyone who reached out and prayed. This will strengthen me on the road to recovery, keep praying for me! 🫢🏾3️⃣

Hamelin went into cardiac arrest and his heart stopped Monday night after making what appeared to be a routine tackle against the Bengals in the first quarter. The game was initially suspended before being officially canceled later in the week.

On Saturday, the Steelers paid tribute to Pittsburgh-area Hamlin by delivering toys, books and school supplies to Kelly & Nina’s Daycare, where the player hosts an annual toy drive. Fans, players and team owners have also donated to Hamlins Chasing M’s Foundationwhich has raised just over $8.2 million as of Saturday afternoon.
