The Miami Dolphins have waived Kendrick Norton following the amputation of his left arm following a car crash.
By placing Norton on the reserve/non-football injury list, the team is able to pay the 22-year-old his full salary.
Norton underwent at least six surgeries before he was released from the hospital last week.
"I just want to give a big thank-you, first of all, to God for me still being here. Second of all, to Jackson Medical Center. They did a great job. They took great care of me while I was in here," Norton told reporters outside the hospital. "Next, I would like to thank the Miami Dolphins family. They've been crazy with how much help they've been willing to give and, you know, they really didn't have to."
