Speaking to Jon Alba on One-On-One (recorded after AEW Full Gear), Darius provided an update on his injury.

"I'm feeling pretty good, just moving around, taking it day by day, trying to get the clearance again, working my way up and building the strength again," he said. "You never want injuries, but I'm thankful it came at a time where I am fortunate enough to have this deal with AEW. AEW has been great to me during it. I really feel all the love and support from them. I've been fortunate enough to have that."

When asked how AEW has helped him, he replied, "I'm still on the road, they've still been paying me. I'm still lucky enough to have that job and financial security because of AEW. It's a great place and Tony Khan is an amazing boss who really values his employees and treats us like human beings. Tony is the best."

It is unknown when Darius will return to the ring.
