Rocker Steiner out two to three months with knee injury
The novitiate season for the name of bareback rider Rocker Steiner has been suspended.
Steiner, 18, is anticipated to miss two to three months after injuring the posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee following his 86-point lift in Pete Carr Pro Rodeo’s Dirty Jacket RodeoHouston Championship Shootout on the 19th. Of March.
“After the whistle, I got knocked down and landed right on my knee,” Steiner said. “It didn’t really hurt until I went back to the locker room and saw that my knee was swollen.”
After seeing Dr. Tandy Freeman on March 21, Steiner said no surgery is needed, just two to three months off.
“I’m in a brace with a straight leg for three weeks and I’ll start recovery around six weeks and should be back before Reno (Nev.),” Steiner said.
The Reno Rodeo is June 16-25.
Steiner is eighth in the PRCA | RAM world ranking with $30,941. He finished second at RodeoHouston and left town after winning $27,850.
“This is not the most elegant time in the world, and I could have done without this, but it could have been worse,” Steiner said. “In no way have I had problems with my knees ahead. I just have to take the hits. I’ll have to stay then (at Weatherford) and recover and be ready for Reno. The main thing is to be healthy and also qualify for the NFR.”
