Favored by many for a November title, Ozeki Asanoyama submitted a medical certificate for withdrawal after Monday’s loss to Komusubi Terunofuji. The injury is stated to be a contusion of a right deltoid (shoulder) muscle which will take about 4 weeks to heal properly. Asanoyama’s day 1 match against Kiribayama is apparently where he sustained the injury. He joins both Yokozuna, Kotoyuki, and Abi on the kyujo list.
