The National Football League has put together a plan for all 32 of its teams to show support for Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin, who suffered a cardiac arrest in the first quarter of Monday night's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
During their Week 18 matchups, teams are being encouraged to hold a pregame moment of support for Hamlin, first responders and medical caregivers, which will happen prior to the national anthem, the NFL said in a press release.
All clubs, both home and away, may also outline the number three, Hamlin's number, in each 30-yard line number on the field in Bills colors, the league said.

And during warmups, all players will have the option to wear black Nike t-shirts that read "Love for Damar 3." Bills players will have similar shirts but in the team's royal blue.
Number three jersey patches will be worn by Bills players during Week 18 play, the league said.
