We reached out to KTM today, and they told us that Marvin rode for the first time today and his plan is to be at A2, ride practice, and see how he feels from there.

Racer X has learned from Musquin's trainer Aldon Baker that Marvin plans to ride some today to see how he feels after last week's injury. He will ride and then a decision will be made to see if it's possible to race tomorrow.
Aldon says Marvin has been doing rehab all week and it seems to be getting better every day. Now it's just a matter of seeing if he has enough strength to do the job.
Expect more information later after Marvin gives it a go today.
Marvin Musquin, the 450SX points leader coming into round two of Monster Energy Supercross, did not make the main event on Saturday after going down in the whoops in his heat race and injuring his left shoulder.
Following the race, KTM released a statement from Musquin:
“After qualifying third today, I went down hard in the whoops in my heat race. I landed on my left shoulder and felt really beat up. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to line up for the rest of night. I'm really disappointed about that given the team and I were in a good place after our win last weekend. But I will get checked up as soon as I get home and will know more in the next few days. Supercross is a longer season so I'm hopeful I will be able to line up in Anaheim 2.”
We will provide more information once it's known.
