“I broke that humerus (bone) again that I had just come back off of, from September, it was just a freak deal with how I landed, Dr Tandy Freeman said it had nothing to do with my previous break. “dustin boquet
“I broke that humerus (bone) again that I had just come back off of, from September” said Boquet. “It was just a freak deal with how I landed, Dr. Tandy Freeman said it had nothing to do with my previous break.” He said unfortunately injuries happen in the sport of rodeo. “I’m just super thankful that I got that round win when I did,” he said. “I’m not mad about it (the injury). It’s just a part of it. I’m going to get right, come back next year, and get after it full throttle.” He won $43,544 with the Round 4 win aboard Hou’s Bad News.
On top of a previous left shoulder dislocation from Round 3, bareback rider Taylor Broussard suffered a neck injury on Tuesday night. He doctored released out of Round 7 and as such will also have to miss Round 8. He’s eligible to return for Round 9 of the Wrangler NFR.

“Last night when I came off that horse, I honestly thought I broke my neck,” Broussard said. “My neck is really tight this morning, so it’s difficult for me to tuck my chin. If I can’t perform my best, my best bet is to take a little break and come back. I will be back for Round 9.” Broussard is sitting 14th in the PRCA | RAM World Standings with $82,381. He has three qualified rides so far at the NFR.
