Cody Rhodes injury update: Separated shoulder among list of injuries likely to keep him out of Survivor Series

Shamsuddin Muhammad

Cody Rhodes, who was injured during this past week's episode of Main Event, had his MRI results come back and he's even more hurt than it originally looked.

We knew Cody Rhodes had suffered a concussion and a shoulder injury during this past week's episode of WWE Main Event but an MRI was scheduled to learn the full extent of the damage.

The results of that MRI are in and it's even worse than it appeared at first. From Rhodes' Twitter:

"MRI results...Torn trapezius grade 2. Torn deltoid grade 1. Separated shoulder. No surgery needed. Won't stop us. #boyhooddream ... In debt to @TedDiBiase for packing my bag that night, and @TheDamienSandow for refusing to tag me in after I got hurt...protected my career."

WWE still hasn't officially released any word on Rhodes' status for the Survivor Series pay-per-view (PPV) scheduled for tomorrow night (Sun., Nov. 18, 2012) at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana, but considering his list of injuries, it seems obvious he won't be working the match, even if they planned ahead to protect him.

Why risk it when there are other options available?

Those other options include Tensai, who has reportedly been tabbed as Rhodes' replacement in the event that he doesn't work the match which, again, he definitely shouldn't be doing.

Stay tuned.
