Andrew Short – Leg

Ryan Morais – Entire body
Comment: According to team manager Bill Keefe, “Ryan’s times were very good, and he looked comfortable on the bike; like he’d never taken any time off. We are excited that he is up to speed and ready to race at Anaheim 3.”

Jason Thomas – Left forearm
Comment: The BTOSports.com/BBMX Palmetto Suzuki rider sustained a pretty deep gash on his left forearm which required both internal and external stitches. However, Thomas says he’s in for this weekend.

Ben Evans – Shoulder

Tommy Searle – Right shoulder
Comment: Tommy will sit out this round and make his return after the break in the series at Seattle in April.

James Stewart – Wrist
Comment: His return to the race track will depend on how quickly he is able to recover post-surgery and will be evaluated and determined on a weekly basis.

Chad Reed – Hand
Comment: Four weeks into his six-week healing process.

Josh Grant – Shoulder
Comment: From JGRMX’s David Evans: “So far things are going as expected with Josh. It will still be a few weeks before he is cleared to ride, and then a little while before he is ready to race again. We want Josh returning fully healed and ready, rather than rushing back and jeopardizing his chances for an AMA Motocross title.”

Daniel Blair - Knees
Comment: Underwent double knee surgery yesterday (Wednesday) and will be out for remainder of the season.

Nate Adams – Thumb
