CALGARY - A family friend and agent of a bull rider injured at the Calgary Stampede says the cowboy has fractured vertebrae and a broken jaw.
Aaron Roy of Yellow Grass, Sask., was stomped in the back by a bull on Thursday.
He was wearing a protective vest, but had to be taken from the grounds on a stretcher.
Agent Jason Davidson says doctors inserted eight screws and two rods into Roy's back.
Davidson says Roy's wife has indicated he is able to move his feet and toes.
He says the bull rider is in some discomfort, but his spirits are good.
