AEW's Andrade El Idolo is currently out of action due to ankle inflammation.

On Friday afternoon, AEW head Tony Khan answered a fan's question on Twitter about why Andrade hasn't been appearing in the ring more often.

Khan said Andrade was hurt in his singles match against Rey Fenix on the Friday, June 24th Rampage.

Andrade took to Twitter Friday night to put fans at ease, saying he would be out a week or two and that the injury was nothing serious.

He later replied to another news outlet's story about the injury, adding the detail about the inflammation.

Andrade missed some time in April and May due to his recent marriage to Charlotte Flair of WWE. He competed in the early-June Casino Battle Royale, followed by a Dark: Elevation match against Kazarian and the aforementioned Fenix match.

On past editions of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer has noted that AEW wants to do Andrade & Rush vs. Lucha Brothers but have been unable to due to injuries on both sides.

Andrade was present on Friday's Rampage, backing up Private Party as they took on Rey Fenix & Penta Oscuro. Rush got involved in the match, interfering and accidentally leading to Private Party's loss.
