Kendrick Norton of the Miami Dolphins is only 22 years old, but his football career may already be over, luckily he life isn’t.
The defensive end was involved in a serious car accident Thursday morning at 1 AM on State Road 836 in Miami when he and his Ford F250 were cut off, with the truck hitting a concrete barrier and rolling over.
Norton’s arm was pinned underneath the vehicle where it was amputated at the scene in order to free him and likely save his life.

With sadness, I can confirm that Kendrick Norton was in a car accident last night and suffered multiple injuries, including the amputation of his arm. We ask that you continue to pray for him. His family also asks that the public respect Kendrick’s privacy.

Norton was drafted in the seventh round of the 2018 NFL draft by the Carolina Panthers but was picked up by the Dolphins last December.
He played college ball at the University of Miami, where he went viral for his guitar celebration using an FSU player’s leg.
