Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin told President Biden that he thinks he will be able to play again following his cardiac arrest in January.
Biden met with Hamlin Thursday, almost three months on from the NFL star suffering cardiac arrest and being resuscitated on the field after making a tackle during a MNF game.
