Rowan of The Bludgeon Brothers has suffered a torn right bicep, WWE.com has learned.
The former SmackDown Tag Team Champion is currently scheduled to undergo surgery to repair the injury this week.

Rowan was unable to perform at the WWE Live Event in Atlantic City, New Jersey on Monday, which all but confirmed he would be out for the count for the time being. It is currently unknown how much in-ring time he will miss, but a bicep tear typically has a recovery time of four to six months.
