WWE superstar Sasha Banks has suffered a foot injury and will miss up to two months of action.

The former SmackDown Women’s Champion was reportedly hurt during an untelevised match against Charlotte Flair last weekend, and the company has now confirmed the extent of the injury.

In a statement, they said: ‘Sasha Banks suffered a foot injury Sunday evening at a WWE Live! event in Fayetteville, NC.

‘After seeking emergency medical attention, it was determined nothing was broken. Sasha underwent an MRI and it was discovered she has a bruised calcaneus bone.’

The star – who also appeared in season two of The Mandalorian as bounty hunter Koska Reeves – could miss up to two months of in-ring time, but is already recovering.

The company added: ‘She is at home recovering and undergoing physical therapy. She is expected to be out of action for 6-8 weeks.’

PWInsider previously reported that Sasha may have planted her leg wrong as she took a backbreaker before kicking out of a pinfall, but she then stayed on the mat as she was checked by the referee.

It’s said the bout was then quickly ended, with Flair retaining the gold before Banks was helped out of the ring by officials.

Sasha had also taken to Twitter to reassure fans she was OK after the incident, tweeting: ‘I’m good. Thank you for the love always.’
