Reed drops more information.

When images of Chad Reed's bruised ankle leaked on social media, some pundits predicted that there was more to the injury than what met the eye. That has, unfortunately, turned out to be true, as Reed confirmed on social media that he had two fractures in his ankle and surgery was required to correct those. The statement that he released can be viewed below.

The injury means Chad Reed will, of course, be unable to compete at the AUS-X Open in a couple of weeks. However, he did state that Anaheim 1 is still his priority. A recovery time has not been specified.
