Damar Hamlin isn’t going to let his tragic injury stop him from doing what he loves. The 24-year-old NFL safety doesn’t plan on his career ending before he reaches 25. 

Hamlin says his ultimate goal is to eventually play football again and according to Buffalo Bills General Manager Brandon Beane, there is a real possibility Hamlin will reach that goal.
