Two-time world champion Jess Lockwood will miss the short remainder of the Pro Bull Riders regular season, according to pbr.com writer Justin Felisko.

Felisko posted to Twitter on Tuesday that a right shoulder injury is keeping Lockwood on the shelf, per Dr. Tandy Freeman, but that the Volborg native will return in time for next month's PBR World Finals in Arlington, Texas. The Finals run from Nov. 12-15 at AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys.

Lockwood currently sits fifth in the world standings, more than 700 points behind Jose Vitor Leme, who's chasing his first world title.

Lockwood was cleared for a return to the PBR in September after healing a torn left hamstring injury he suffered during a ride on March 1. He underwent surgery in New York City on March 10, then spent six weeks in a knee brace while using crutches.
