Two-time NFR qualifying bull rider Jordan Hansen out with injury

Bull rider Jordan Hansen, a two-time qualifier for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in 2017 and 2019, is out of action with a left shoulder injury.

Hansen suffered the injury after his 88-point ride on Rafter G Rodeo’s Bumpstock on Feb. 1 at the Fort Worth (Texas) Stock Show & Rodeo to win the wildcard round at Dickies Arena.

“I dislocated my left shoulder, my riding arm, and I’m not sure if there is any other damage on it or not,” said Hansen, 29. “I’m waiting to get an MRI to find out if there is anything else wrong.”

Hansen described what happened from his point of view on his ride.

“Right when I landed, I kind of landed in the hard part of the arena,” Hansen said. “I landed with my elbow first and I popped my shoulder out the front, I guess. I was making it back to the semifinals, but I had a bad landing that put an end to that.”

The Canadian Hansen was hoping to compete in San Antonio, but he said he had to doctor release out of the Playoff Series rodeo because of his injury.

“I really don’t know what to expect at this point,” Hansen said. “I’m getting an MRI (Feb. 15) and then I will go from there. I will wait and see what the doctors say and hopefully get back at it as soon as possible.”
