NFL Player Has Arm Amputated After Accident

Kendrick Norton, a 22-year-old defensive lineman for the Miami Dolphins, had an arm amputation after a car accident early Thursday in Miami, his agent says.

The Florida Highway Patrol said Norton had “severe injuries to his left arm.” Lt. Alex Camacho said Norton was driving early Thursday morning on State Road 836, also called the Dolphin Expressway. Norton’s Ford pickup ran into a concrete barrier wall for “unknown reasons,” Camacho said. The vehicle flipped, coming to a stop on its roof.

The Dolphins announced that they’d signed Norton on December 19 after he was drafted by the Carolina Panthers earlier in the year. Norton has not played in a regular-season NFL game.
