WWE is saying that Sasha Banks is expected to be out of action for 6-8 weeks after suffering an injury last weekend.

"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. She is at home recovering and undergoing physical therapy. She is expected to be out of action for 6-8 weeks," WWE announced.

The injury happened during a match where Banks faced SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair at the Fayetteville house show. Banks tweeted after the match that she was good and thanked everyone for the love they showed her.

If the 6-8 weeks timeline proves to be accurate, it means that Banks would miss this year's women's Royal Rumble match but would be back in time for WrestleMania.

Banks is part of the SmackDown women's division.

Nineteen of the 30 entrants for the women's Rumble match were announced on Friday's SmackDown. That included Charlotte declaring that she'll be in the match despite being the SmackDown Women's Champion. Charlotte said she'll be the first champion to win the Royal Rumble and choose their own WrestleMania challenger.
