Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Austin Forkner has sustained a broken hand and torn ligaments in his left knee, according to the latest injury update from David Pingree. X-rays revealed that there is a bone fragment floating around in his knee, indicating that the ligament was pulled off. As a result, Austin will be out of the Supercross season for 4-8 weeks to recover from his broken hand, assuming it’s a simple fracture. However, as for the torn ligament, it is currently unclear which one is affected (ACL/MCL/LCL/PCL) and surgery will be required. It is a tough blow for Austin and his team Pro Circuit Kawasaki. David Pingree and guest Ricky Johnson dive in to the action from this weekend’s season opener at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California.
