The third-year safety has taken the field against the Colts in Buffalo’s 2023 preseason opener. It’s the latest development in a progression that saw him cleared to practice, to practice in pads, and now to play in a game.
So far on Saturday, Hamlin contributed to the making of a stop on fourth and short.

The possibility lingers that Hamlin will be determined to be not one of the best 53 players on the team. That would force the Bills to potentially make what likely would be a hugely unpopular move, cutting Hamlin.
God is good.
