Travis and Jason Kelsey’s latest episode of the “New Heights Podcast” focused on Buffalo Bills’ safety Damar Hamlin, who went into cardiac arrest during an NFL game.
The NFL and the sports world are awaiting updates on the health of Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin. During last Monday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals, Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest after a tackle, for which he was transported to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center in critical condition. Throughout the week, Hamlin was a topic of discussion given the horrific situation that occurred in Cincinnati.
Kansas City Cheevers tight end Travis Kelsey and Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jason Kelsey focused the entirety of the latest episode of the “New Heights Podcast” on Hamlin’s health accident. The Kelsey brothers also discussed their reactions to him as NFL players.

“The immediate thoughts, at least for me, are his family, and what his family is going through,” Travis said. “I’m terrified of being lying on the pitch and owning it [Jason]And mom and dad are in the matter of everything that happens. This is probably the worst feeling you can have as a player in my mind.”
Jason followed that up, fanning out when Travis suffered a concussion in a 2017-18 playoff game against the Tennessee Titans.
“As a family member, there’s absolutely nothing crazier than someone you love and you don’t know if it’s going to be okay,” Jason said. “It’s definitely the worst feeling in the world. That’s why I don’t remember who you’re playing with half the time because everyone immediately forgot about it. I forgot about it. I’m just thinking about it and trying to text the guys ‘Are you okay?’ It was crazy.
“As soon as something like this happens, you think of family members, friends, colleagues and seeing all the reactions of the players on the field.”
Midway through the first quarter, Hamlin collapsed after getting up after a tackle. Medical staff went into the field to treat him, and it was revealed that they needed to perform CPR for several minutes. Hamlin was given oxygen while being placed in an ambulance.
The match was officially postponed to Monday night.
Wednesday afternoon, Bills issued a statement Hamlin remains in the intensive care unit in critical condition, he said, but has shown signs of improvement as of Tuesday.
