Share on Facebook

The Miami Dolphins are undoubtedly one of the most successful teams in AFC history. During the team’s thirty-year run, they’ve climbed the ranks – having some of the best players of all time on the pitch, including the likes of Hall of Fame players, Larry Csonka, Paul Warfield, Bob Griese, and Larry Little.

But they are also host to new, up-and-coming talent, including Kendrick Norton.

However, tragically, news has been confirmed that Norton was involved in a “horrific” car crash yesterday, which has resulted in him losing his arm.

His condition is said to be critical, with his agent releasing more information about the terrible accident via a statement.

 

Born in Jacksonville, Florida, the twenty-two-year-old was going from strength to strength with his sporting career.

Norton had three stand out years at the college’s football team.

However, he didn’t play in an NFL game last season, spending the year on the Panther’s practice squad.

The star has not played for the team yet and was competing for a roster spot this off-season.

Florida police confirmed that the star’s Ford F250 crashed into a concrete barrier and overturned on State Road 836 in the early hours of Thursday morning.

His girlfriend is said to have sustained minor injuries.

His agent said that he is in a critical condition following the crash.

Tragically, Norton had to have his arm amputated at the scene.

Norton’s girlfriend can be seen being wheeled out of the ambulance. At this time, it remains unclear whether she and Norton were traveling in the same vehicle or in two different vehicles.

According to police dispatch audio, the star’s arm was pinned underneath a truck, although the audio also suggests that the arm may have been severed at the scene.

He requested that the public “pray for him” and respect his privacy.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with Kendrick and his family during this time,” they wrote.

Though his injuries are said to not be life-threatening.

Twitter was flooded with well wishes and prayers for the star.
