Update on Dusty LaBeth

Bull riding fans who watched the action from Albuquerque, NM, will likely remember the terrifying wreck that KS cowboy Dusty LaBeth suffered early in the second go round after coming off Crooked Tooth back in early April. Dusty appeared to get his leg stuck in his bull rope, twisting it behind him as he landed and badly fracturing his femur. According to Dusty's website he is healing as well as can be expected. He is apparently off his crutches and now getting around with the help of the cane and his doctor is optimistic that he should be able to fully bear his weight and walk more easily in about another 10 weeks or so. It will still be a long time before he is back on bulls and riding again, but his progress is definitely a good sign.

It seems like he's always injured!

Hey Cubby.
I couldn't agree with you more. Two years ago he had that terrible wreck on Hooch and now this. Seems like everytime he gets going good he gets hurt. Let's hope he can make it back to the top.
