Good Morning, Canes fam.
Everyone here at SOTU still has Kendrick Norton in our thoughts and prayers and it appears Norton has stabilized. The latest coming in is that Norton’s arm was amputated and he suffered a head injury but did not suffer any life-threatening injuries. The big man has been getting a ton of support from all corners of the State of Miami and we will continue to wish him a speedy recovery.
