Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Kendrick Norton was released from the hospital Thursday weeks after his arm was amputated following a car crash.
Norton briefly thanked the doctors and staff at Jackson Memorial Hospital and his Miami Dolphins family for helping him recover after the early morning July 4 crash on State Road 836 near Miami.
"I just wanna give a big thank you to, first of all, God for me still being here," Norton told reporters in front of JMH. "Second of all, to Jackson Medical Center - they did a great job, they took great care for me while I was in there."

"I want to thank the Miami Dolphins family, it's been crazy how much help they've been willing to give," he said.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the Ford F-250 Norton was driving crashed into a concrete barrier and overturned.
Norton played at the University of Miami and was drafted by the Carolina Panthers in the seventh round in 2018. He spent much of last season on their practice squad. The Dolphins signed him in December.
