Over on Sumo Forum on Apr 10, Moti Dichne reported:
"Chiyotaikai has a fractured rib-two weeks to heal, and is out of the Haru
Jungyo. Add that to his "left side pain" and sudden high sugar levels, the
reasons given for his 2-13 performance in Haru, and we should call Houston."

I remember about 20 years or so ago when I was about 38-39 I had a
motorcycle accident that cracked a couple of my ribs, gave me assorted road
rash and a few bruises.  I had a water bed at the time and I couldn't sleep
in it for 2 months as the pain of getting into and out of it was extreme.  I
can't even imagine doing sumo with cracked ribs. Of course it IS
approximately 2 months from the 2nd day of Haru til the 1st day of Natsu BUT
I can't see much keiko in the meantime at least not of any quality.

-> In an article on the Yomiuri Shimbun Japanese-language website dated

-> is a little unclear with numbers) broken left rib. Apparently, he got

-> that it's been nearly two weeks now since the Haru Basho ended.
-> I remember when my father got a cracked rib while working at a
-> sawmill. I think it took more than a couple weeks for him to recover

-> look for kyujo or intai before Day 1 of Natsu?
