PUEBLO, Colo. — Jess Lockwood's return to Professional Bull Riders competition has been pushed back.

Lockwood told PBR.com writer Justin Felisko a CT scan on Thursday in Dallas showed his broken left collarbone has not fully healed.

He was hoping to compete at the PBR event this weekend in Kansas City.

The 2017 PBR world champion from Volborg broke his collarbone on Feb. 9 during the Global Cup event.

"My bone is still broke apart," Lockwood told Felisko. "It is healing, but it is not healing right. It won't seem to form together. I am going to buy a bone stimulator and try to use that and hopefully that helps."

Lockwood said he has another appointment with Dr. Tandy Freeman in two weeks but could be out longer.

The 21-year-old Lockwood opened 2019 by winning the first two events. He has missed the last four PBR top-tier events and has a lead of 47.5 points over Joao Ricardo Vieira of Brazil.
