WWE Posts Injury Update On Orton, How Long He May Be Out



WWE.com has released details concerning Randy Orton’s condition following an injury he suffered at Tuesday’s SmackDown taping, including how long The Viper could be sidelined.

Although the full extent of his injury remains to be seen, WWE physician Dr. Michael Sampson examined Orton and updated WWE.com on his condition.

“Randy suffered a herniated disc on the L4-L5 level on the left side, and that’s resulting in pain and weakness down his leg.” Sampson explained. “He’s going to need some time off for rehab, anti-inflammatory medications and physical therapy.”

WWE.com adds that the injury could keep him sidelined for a few weeks.

Sheamus will replace Orton in Street Fights against Wade Barrett at WWE live events this week.
