http://sumo.or.jp/EnHonbashoMain/absence/ now has it: Kotoshogiku out from Day 3

2 weeks of treatment expected to fully recover from a torn muscle in the left lower leg. The shisho told what Kotoshogiku said: after the torikumi "there was that snapping sound", still pain in the morning, "I can't put the foot on the ground", he shows the desire to reenter later. https://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/news/202009150000140.html

Anybody know what is going on with Takaryu's (Makushita #43) legs? He doesn't walk in a normal way. His legs almost seem to be misshapen. He's a large lad, but does that account for it?

Height 180.7cm

I guess that means that Kyokutaisei is not "too" seriously injured.  He probably wants to try and protect his Makuuchi status...  Let's see how that works out.

It is still early in the torikumi-making day. Sekitori  kyujos tend to be reported just before they start work on it.

Noticed that myself, think he's got genu varum aka bandy legs. There are different causes for that, most being childhood illness or genetics. 

I've seen video from him back in middle school, where he was also a very heavy lad, and his legs were the same.

Actually, I googled based on your suggestion and I think his condition more closely resembles this:

 Knock knees, also known as genu valgum, is a type of knee alignment seen when a child (or adult) stands up straight with their knees together, but their feet and ankles stay apart


Coincidentally, perhaps, it was his legs that failed him in his loss on day 7. They sort of crumpled under him and he lost balance and went down.

Ya, I think you're probably right. Either way, it looks like an uncomfortable condition to move around with!
