Jarred Browne – Collarbone
Comment:  Says Jarred: “I’ve been riding for about a month but my wrist is taking a lot longer than expected to get its strength back. I want to be 100 percent ready when I come back and that probably won't be until Unadilla.”

Trey Canard – Femur
Comment: He’s back on the bike and hopes to return to racing at Washougal, according to Steve Matthes.

Kyle Chisholm – Misc.

Jimmy DeCotis- Elbow
Comment: Dislocated elbow at the Seattle SX. Team manager Mike LaRocco told us that Jimmy hopes to get released to start riding next week and that he probably won’t race till Unadilla at the earliest.

Shane Durham – Knee
Comment: Tore his ACL in the first moto at High Point. Still riding but isn’t sure if he’ll do any more nationals this summer.

Cody Gilmore – Shoulder
Comment: Dislocated his shoulder in his heat race in Seattle and suffered a slight tear in his labrum. The healing process stalled so he had surgery recently to have his labrum fixed, so he'll be out all summer.

Gavin Gracyk – Knee
Comment: Had a full ACL repair. “In a few weeks I will be at the three-month mark and will then be able to start doing much more intense training on the knee,” Gavin told us recently. “Looks like I will be able to begin riding in mid- to late-August.”

Josh Grant – Knee
Comment: After missing almost the entire SX tour with a knee injury, Grant returned to action in Colorado only to injury his OTHER knee. He’s racing RedBud, though, as earlier this week he tweeted “Well heading to red buuuud.. Still sore but at least I'm not having surgery.”

He signed with the Hart & Huntington Kawasaki team for 2011 and 2012 but the injuries prevented him from racing the 2011 season. Hill underwent another surgery recently and is hoping to get back on the bike in the next month or two with an eye to come back for the 2012 supercross series.

Comment: Suffered a compound fracture of his thumb after this first-turn crash with Justin Barcia at the Freestone National.

Comment: Hard crashes at both Budds Creek and Thunder Valley has sidelined Weston until Millville.

Tye Simmonds – Bronchitis
