According to his wife, he has broken ribs, a collapsed lung, and a concussion. The collapsed lung will need six to eight weeks to heal.

“Thank you all so much for your 🙏🏻 for Robin,” Melody Roberts, Robin Roberts wife said in a Facebook post. “He is going to be ok. We have some serious healing but his mind is good & the body will heal over time. We feel unbelievably blessed to come out of this situation as good as we did. He was passed out for a long time. He doesn’t remember any of it. He has 3 cracked ribs and a collapsed lung. He has a serious concussion but, all things considered, we are very lucky & blessed! The love and support has been amazing & God bless every one of you for being there for us.

I know he is going to be fine because he is hungry again and snapping out orders. 🍗🍔🥩🥓🥞. That’s my Southwest Kansas Man💙😍💪🏻”

The No Prep Kings tour has two stops left on their schedule. It is unlikely with his injuries that Roberts will be able to make a comeback to compete in these events.

Next weekend, the teams will be competing at Alabama International Dragway. This event was added following the non-filming at Tulsa Raceway Park in August due to the death of Street Outlaws producer Mike Helmann.

The teams will conclude their season at the Texas Motorplex in two weeks.
