Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Kendrick Norton was ticketed in the July 4 crash that led to the amputation of his left arm, ESPN reported.

ESPN, which obtained a copy of the report from the Florida Highway Patrol, said he was cited with an improper lane change. He suddenly pulled his F-250 truck in front of a Maserati and clipped it, sending his car into a concrete barrier.

The Maserati driver was not injured.

The report said drugs or alcohol were not believed to be involved in the accident.

Norton, who played collegiately at Miami, has been in the hospital since July 4 and has had at least four surgeries on his arm. It is expected he will have further surgery to prepare him for an eventual prosthetic, ESPN reported.

His condition has been upgraded to stable.

Norton spent the 2018 season on the Panthers' practice squad after Carolina selected him in the seventh round of the 2018 NFL Draft. The Dolphins signed him in December.

NFL officials said the league and team insurance will cover his medical bills.
