Justin SportsMedicine Update Heading Into Round 6


We have hit the halfway point of the 2022 NFR and the injuries are starting to pile up.

In Bull Riding, JR Stratford will miss the remainder of the NFR with a broken ankle and also a shoulder injury that will need to be reconstructed.

In Bareback Riding, Orin Larsen is out tonight after tearing a piece of bone off the joint on his riding hand. Dr. Tandy Freeman does not expect him to be back this year.

Reid Oftedahl has already been ruled out after a closed head injury early in the NFR.

Garrett Smith is being monitored for concussion symptoms after being hit in the head last night twice. He has not been ruled out as of now, but a final decision will be made before tonight’s performance.
