Apart from the recently-retired Tochiozan, all sekitori will start this collector's edition July basho at the Kokugikan. The lower division absences are as follows.

Makushita:

Ms9w Shiba
Ms11w Tomokaze
Ms27e Terao - intai
Ms42e Chiyonokatsu
Ms42w Irodori
Ms45w Gokushindo
Ms56w Hatooka

Sandanme:

Sd13e Amatsu
Sd23e Gochozan - possibly intai
Sd28e Gagamaru
Sd31e Aratora
Sd47w Akitoba
Sd60w Kyokuyuko - intai
Sd64w Kurahashi - intai
Sd82w Shobushi - R.I.P.
Sd89e Etsunohana
Sd89w Ako - intai
Sd90e Bankoku

Jonidan:

Jd40w Kototsukahara
Jd44e Nogami
Jd47e Hisanotora
Jd49e Teraosho
Jd50w Sakaefuji
Jd60w Tochigidake
Jd61w Dewaazuma
Jd63w Terumichi - intai
Jd71w Taiga
Jd78e Fukuminato
Jd87e Hakuomaru
Jd92w Fukamachi
Jd95e Takamasaki - intai
Jd95w Chiyotaiko
Jd98e Ryuga
Jd107w Oju
Jd116w Kenho

Jonokuchi:

Jk5w Houn - possibly intai
Jk10w Kyokushoriki
Jk11w Kotokino
Jk12w Wakaseiun - intai
Jk17e Ishii
Jk30w Yamakawa - possibly intai
Jk34w Daigonishiki


Tate-gyoji Shikimori Inosuke is also kyujo due to poor health, which is why Kimura Tamajiro was the senior gyoji in the dohyo-matsuri earlier.


And just for clarity, retiring sekitori (or former sekitori) go straight on the intai list and are therefore not listed as kyujo by the Kyokai. On the current banzuke they are:

J2w Tochiozan - retired July 15th, now Kiyomigata-oyakata
Ms7w Toyonoshima - retired April 17th, now Izutsu-oyakata
Ms41w Sokokurai - retired March 26th, now Arashio-oyakata
Ms57e Seiro - retired July 13th
Sd4w Tokushinho - retired June 1st

One rapid returnee and four more withdrawals ahead of Day 7.

Returning:

Sd67w Kotosusumu


Withdrawing:

Ms35e Inoue

Sd5e Sagatsukasa

Sd54w Nihonyanagi

Sd71w Hokutoryu (fusen Day 6)

 

Inoue had to be taken to the clinic in a wheelchair after injuring his right knee in his Day 5 yoritaoshi loss to Hiradoumi. He reported hearing a cracking sound.

Nihonyanagi couldn't put any weight on his right leg after landing off the dohyo in his Day 5 loss to Haruminato - I fear it could be a repeat injury to his right knee, which he had surgery on before joining ozumo. (But that's just my speculation)

Just watched NHK's coverage and the MC asked Shikoroyama Oyakata

Did Abi really kyujo?

Just heard from the english broadcast that Abi went out to dinner last night without permission, so his Oyakata's making him sit out. Funny stuff!

Reposted from the Spoilers thread:

Shikoroyama Oyakata made the decision to have Abi go kyujo after the rikishi ill-advisedly went out to eat/drink with several guests last night, as a safeguard in case he might have contracted Covid.

Oyakata, scolding Abi on the broadcast: "If it was just himself that were to contract covid, that would be his responsibility, but to put everyone else at risk, he did an awful thing."

So...Abi is pretty much done this tournament, then? If it's really about 'rona he's got 14 quiet days ahead of him.

We might still see him back up on the ring this tournament.  As long as his PCR test comes back negative, and he does show any symptoms, he might be able to return by day 10.  But maybe Shikoroyama Oyakata has the final say on that, and he doesn't sound too pleased...

Given Abi's  record of screw-ups and heya embarrassments, I don't think he should rely on much sympathy from Shikoroyama.

I just checked the link that Crab Mountain ;-) (Kaninoyama) provided above, and this story appears to have legs.  

Abi has succeeded in ticking off JSA Chair Hakkaku, Judges Committee Head Isegahama, his own shisho Shikoroyama, not to mention his own fans and those of Mitakeumi.  Given his previous "screw-ups", I can't help but wonder if Abi will be handed a more serious punishment...

What a dummy. All he has to do is home his talents and follow (at times crazy) rules to make tons of money.

This Kotonowaka withdrawal is not what we wanted to hear. His sumo is enjoyable to watch and I was hoping for a very strong result this tournament.

Looks like Shikoroyama is putting his foot down, and Abi is not coming back to this tournament (negative PCR or not).  At least, that's my take from the following link:
