As previously reported, Elias suffered a torn pectoral muscle recently, which is why he was written off television using the hit-and-run angle on SmackDown.
The Wrestling Observer is now reporting that Elias could miss a significant time away from the ring.
"Generally that’s close to an eight month return, sometimes a little shorter, with surgery. Some don’t have surgery. Those in WWE confirmed the injury was legit but we have no confirmation of a surgery."
