If you're in, you're in. The minute you're in injuries are not taken into consideration ever and that's how it should be. Injured? Stay out. I don't buy the "late COVID" theory regarding Shoudai and Mitakeumi. They should and will be judged by their records, period. It has always been that way. The current Ozeki crop is the worst in many years, even worse than when we had the mediocre Ozeki groups in the past. I don't ever remember two Ozeki going 4-11. Injured? Go rest. You're getting a makekoshi anyway, so why aggravate the injury? Or, maybe, there simply is no physical injury?
