Rumors that Tim Ferry sustained a knee injury reached the TWMX offices early this morning and a call to Terry Beal at Yamaha confirmed that Ferry did, indeed, suffer a minor knee injury. Red Dog was riding at home in Dade City, Florida, and high-sided off a jump. Reports had Timmy in severe pain, and he immediately went right to the hospital for x¿rays. A MRI revealed some torn meniscus – the cartilage that cushions the knee from impact. On Wednesday morning, January 2, Ferry underwent surgery to remove the torn cartilage. Timmy will miss the season opener at Anaheim, but may be back in action a soon as round two in San Diego.
