Nick Paglino

WWE's website has confirmed earlier reports of Los Matadores tag team member Fernando (Epico) suffering an injury during WWE's live event in Newark, Delaware over the weekend.

The report notes Fernando suffered ankle and knee injuries, was splinted, and taken to a local emergency room for precautionary reasons. He underwent X-rays to determine the nature of his injuries and after reviewing the X-rays on Monday, WWE physician Dr. Chris Amann was able to confirm a diagnosis.

Amann issued the following statement:

"Fortunately there are no fractures. However, he has a pretty significant left ankle sprain, as well as a sprain of one of the ligaments of the knee. We put him in a boot, he's on crutches, and we expect him to be back in three to four weeks."

Fernando will undergo rehab at the WWE Performance Center.
