PRCA News: Rusty Wright out indefinitely after suffering leg break
Rusty Wright, a five-time Wrangler National Tests Rodeo qualifier, will be out indefinitely after sustaining multiple fractures in his right leg at the Clark County Fair and Rodeo in Logandale, Nevada, on April 7.
Wright told ProRodeo.com that he broke his ankle and suffered a spiral fracture in his tibia. In addition to those breaks, he also broke his fibula below the knee and just above the ankle. After his 83-point lift at Bar T Rodeo’s Hell Boy, the injury passed.
He had surgery Friday morning in Las Vegas. Wright said he believes the injury will cause him to miss the rest of the ProRodeo season, but he didn’t rule out a possible return.
