Maybe once he heals he can have a arm made for him. There is another professional football player that is missing a hand that still plays.

Find comfort in that he didn’t lose his life. Kendrick is part of the ‘Canes family, and we’re all hurting right now. Hope he’ll be giving a chance at a coaching career. The journey is not over, just a slight detour.

His dreams of playing in the NFL since he was a kid crushed by this freak accident. I think this hurts him more than losing his arm. Hope he recovers soon.
