Jake Marsack - Neck
Comment: Jake Marsack out with a broken neck - C2 and C7. Under the current care of Steve Navarro.

John Jelderda - Collarbone
Comment: Qualified for the 450 Class at both Hangtown and Freestone, but an early-moto fall in Texas sidelined the rookie for four weeks. He's planning on coming back at Unadilla and will compete in the 250 Class.

Christian Craig – Broken Back
Comment: From his agent: "The rods in his back are expected to be removed in early June. He is healing very well and eager to have them taken out. Once the rods are removed it should be two to three months before he can ride again. He has been working out with his Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/Lucas Oil Honda team at Charles Dao's "Icon Sports Performance" and making great progress. People can follow his recovery by signing up for his email list at www.ChristianCraig.net. Depending on his recovery pace he should be up to speed in time for the U.S. Open. However, his focus is already set on the 2011 SX season."

Justin Brayton – Ribs
Comment: He’s going to try racing High Point this weekend. Read the press release here.

Tyler Bowers – Femur
Comment: Starting therapy a few times a week but still isn’t putting any pressure on the hip until the doctor says it’s healed.
