BLAKE BAGGETT – THUMB | IN
Comment: Baggett hurt his thumb when he crashed after he and Jason Anderson got together at RedBud. He didn’t fracture anything, but he did sprain his thumb. Earlier this week his mechanic, Nate Alexander, told us Baggett was all right, that “he’s a hardass,” and that pain doesn’t really affect him.

BENNY BLOSS – SHOULDER, HUMERUS | OUT
Comment: Bloss is planning on making his return to racing at Spring Creek.

Trey Canard - Banged Up | Out
Comment: KTM announced on Thursday that Canard was miss Southwick after a practice crash this week. According to the team, Canard did not sustain any bodily injuries, but the impact was bad enough that he’s elected to sit out this weekend.

DAVI MILLSAPS – WRISTS | OUT
Comment: Millsaps opted to undergo surgery after supercross to fix injured wrists. The original plan was to return to racing at some point this summer, but an official date has not been set.

MARVIN MUSQUIN – KNEE | IN
Comment: Musquin tore the meniscus in his left knee before High Point. Initially he said he’d be riding to salvage points, but after RedBud, where he went 3-3 for third overall, it’s probably safe to say he’s feeling better.

A little bit of champagne on the podium will make any injury feel better.
