Dusty Tuckness discusses his injury and more on Western Sports Round-Up
Dusty Tuckness was on Western Sports Round-Up on Wednesday evening to discuss his injury at the NFR.
Tuckness suffered two open fractures in his left leg after Braden Richardson’s ride in Round 9.
Tuckness said it’s a game of inches and six inches either direction and he would’ve been able to get out just fine like he always does. Instead, the bull’s front legs came down on Tuckness’ leg and it immediately gave out. He said he knew right away something wasn’t right.
“Just from the sound and just how it felt (I knew something wasn’t right) and then when I looked down, I noticed my leg wasn’t in the position I would normally want it,” he said.
He ended up having surgery on the morning of Round 10 and making it to the arena to watch.
His recovery is expected to be anywhere from 4-12 months.
“Through it all, God’s got a plan and so I’m excited to see that unfold and get to work,” he said.
Tuckness is a 10-time Bullfighter of the Year and 13-time NFR bullfighter.
