WWE have announced that Dean Ambrose’s triceps tendon injury will put him on the shelf for around nine months.
During last night’s episode of Raw, announcer Michael Cole revealed the prognosis, with Ambrose’s surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Dugas later telling the WWE website;
“He tore some of the distal triceps tendon where it attaches to the forearm bone, called the olecranon. He basically tore about 50 percent of the triceps tendon away from the bone. So yesterday we repaired that back down to the bone where it tore off of. The surgery was very straightforward; we removed all of the extra bursal tissue — all of that extra swollen stuff around his elbow.”
Ambrose originally suffered the injury one week prior during a six-man tag-team match.
