Mickie James out for a long time with ACL injury

 
 

Mickie James will be out of action for nearly a year after she revealed she tore her ACL and will be requiring surgery.

James was injured during her match against Carmella last weekend and underwent an MRI on Monday which confirmed the bad news.

She added that she does not know when she will be undergoing surgery yet. Typical recovery for ACL injuries is between six to nine months.

The former champ has not been seen on WWE television since WrestleMania 35 and is now part of the Smackdown roster after she was moved during the Superstar Shake-up.
