Trey Canard – After a season already decimated by injuries and missed races, Trey Canard was sitting out the rest of the Supercross season, but, unfortunately, broke his collarbone while practicing for the outdoors.
Broc Tickle — Fractured a bone in his wrist while testing at the Suzuki test track. He is on indefinite leave.
Cole Seely — Will be back at New York to give his torn adductor muscle a go. He wants to hold on to his top five in 2017 Supercross points—plus Honda doesn’t have anyone else.
Colt Nichols – Crashed practicing between races and suffered an MCL tear. Colt missed the start of the 2017 season with a broken femur (and switched from the 250 West to the 250 East). We saw him testing at Glen Helen on Thursday, so he will be back for the Nationals.
Alex Martin — Still suffering from the aftereffects of the Christian Craig incident. Alex has elected to sit out the rest of the Supercross season.
Jeremy Martin — The Geico Honda 250 West rider dropped out of the 250 Supercross series to get ready for the 250 Nationals.

Weston Peick – Wrist injury that required surgery, but had the pins removed recently and will be back for the 450 Nationals.
Matt Biscelgia – Originally broke his foot and switched to the 250 East. Then, when getting ready for Toronto, he crashed and broke his tib and fib.
