Jessy Nelson – Back
Comment: Nelson crashed hard at Unadilla and fractured his T4 and T5 vertebra. Earlier this week he still had no feeling or movement in his legs but was starting to regain sensation in his chest and ribs. Nelson underwent successful surgery on Wednesday, and doctors told the family that “there was no further damage and the surgery went well and according to plan.” It is still too early to confidently stay the extent of Jessy’s injuries. If you’re able, contribute to the Road 2 Recovery fund that has been set up for Nelson.

Colt Nichols - Knee
Comment: Nichols will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on a meniscus injured at Washougal.

Chase Sexton – Knee
Comment: Just days after receiving the AMA Horizon Award, Sexton suffered an avulsion fracture (when the ligament pulls off a piece of bone) in his knee. He was slated to make his pro debut at Unadilla but will wait until Monster Energy Supercross in 2017.

Coty Schock – Broken Vertebra, Wrist
Comment: The privateer went down hard in the first moto at Unadilla; the race was red flagged as a result. Schock underwent successful surgery earlier this week to repair a broken L1 vertebrae. Doctors were able to repair the broken L1 vertebrae with two rods and a plate. He also sustained a broken wrist, but it will not require surgery. Road 2 Recovery has set up a fundraising campaign to help with expenses.
