According to the folks at F4WOnline, Shawn Michaels and the WWE can breathe a sigh of relief following the evaluation of his injury. After consulting with medical professionals, HBK was only diagnosed with a minor tear in his left triceps.
Jacob Spades’ Thoughts:
What this means: No surgery is necessary, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be performed. Surgery would most likely be contingent upon how well his muscle holds up after his Pay-Per-View match Sunday at Unforgiven against Chris Jericho.
How long will he be gone?: Reports are suggesting that with a minor tear of the triceps muscle, Shawn Michaels could potentially be looking at a one month hiatus from the wrestling ring.
What is the treatment for a minor triceps tear? Treatment options include rest, ice, heat, pain relief and mobility and strength exercises. The recovery time for a minor triceps tear can be one to four weeks. (Source: TheDisabledList.com)
