Tyler Boyd Calls Out Bart Scott, Hamlin Family Wants Tee Higgins Criticism To Stop

The ESPN analyst said Higgins implemented an illegal hit on Tuesday.

CINCINNATI — Damar Hamlin's family provided a positive update regarding the 24-year-old's health on Wednesday morning—while also calling for the Tee Higgins' criticism to stop.

ESPN's Coley Harvey spoke to family spokesman Jordon Rooney.

"Doctors overnight got promising readings that they had been hoping to see by this morning," Harvey tweeted. "Jordon couldn’t go into specifics, but progress appears to be made."

Hamlin had reportedly been using 100% ventilator power on Monday night but that was reduced to 50% on Tuesday. All while, ESPN's Bart Scott criticized Higgins for his contact on the fateful play.

"Damar’s father is among those calling for any criticisms of Bengals WR Tee Higgins (who was part of the play Damar was injured on) to STOP," Harvey tweeted.

Scott was questioning the way Tee Higgins leaned his body on what was a routine football play.

Fellow Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd was not happy with the comments—more on Scott here.

The Bills' safety tackled Tee Higgins in the first quarter of Monday night's game, and then Hamlin immediately collapsed after getting up from the play.

Paramedics administered CPR and an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) on the field for nearly 10 minutes before transporting him to University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

After his injury, Fans immediately found a GoFundMe toy drive fundraiser that Hamlin started in 2020. The original goal was $2,500—as of this writing—the total had surpassed $6 million in donations.
