Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Kendrick Norton had his arm amputated following a serious car accident Wednesday night.

Norton's agent, Malki Kawa, confirmed the amputation Thursday, writing the arm was among "multiple injuries" suffered by the 22-year-old in the accident. 

The Dolphins said in a statement Thursday morning that 22-year-old Norton's injuries aren't considered life-threatening, but offered few other details. 

 Norton was a seventh-round pick of the Carolina Panthers in 2018 and joined the Dolphins last December as a member of the team's practice squad.
