    With a broken Scaphoid navicular, which is a small bone located right below the thumb. Blood stops flowing through it after 14 years. When broken this bone has been known as a career ender. Carter also has broken his wrist and a tweaked up ankle. All injuries suffered in a practice crash this past weekend. Best of luck and a fast recovery E.C

    Pretty much, only way to have it repaired is to have it surgically redone. More of the racer types shoulder have heard of Dave Cullinan(Cully) his career was ended due to this bone.
