As I’ve said before, Norton should be thankful to be alive. After his arm was amputated, there’s no doubt his NFL career is over, but at least he’s still alive.

From the sounds of this accident, it sounds like Norton could have easily died. He won’t play another snap of football, but at least he has his life.

Now, he can start the extremely long road to recovery. The situation is awful. There’s just no other way to sum it up.

It’s absolutely awful. The young man was preparing for what would hopefully have been a long NFL career. Instead, he will now have to learn how to live life with only one arm.

Hopefully, he rises to the occasion and makes the best of a terrible situation.
