Dolphins player suffers amputated arm

Following a serious car accident, Miami Dolphins and former University of Miami player Kendrick Norton suffered an amputated arm among other less severe injuries according to his agent Malki Kawa via Twitter.

The accident occurred in the early hours of the morning in  Miami in which Norton’s car flipped after his vehicle was cut off while driving.
He was immediately taken to Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital to treat his injuries. According to a family friend, other than the major amputation of his arm, Norton also is dealing with bleeding from the back of his head.

The Dolphins made a statement as follows: “We were made aware this morning of a serious car accident involving Kendrick Norton. Our thoughts and prayers are with Kendrick and his family during this time.”

Norton would have  been battling to make the Dolphins roster as he was invited to training camp with the Dolphins that is scheduled to start in a few weeks. He played the last two games of the 2018 season with the Dolphins last year. He was originally drafted by the Carolina Panthers in the 2018 NFL Draft before he was claimed by the Dolphins after remaining on the Panthers practice squad after being cut.
