WWE Provides A Medical Update On Kofi Kingston

Sir Kofi's status for this week's episode of WWE SmackDown is in question.

Last Friday night, King Xavier Woods defeated Jimmy Uso in a 'Bend the Knee Match.' The New Day member was victorious, but before Jimmy could kneel before the King, Xavier was hit with a Superman Punch by Roman Reigns. The Bloodline proceeded to beat up Woods and Kingston, specifically targeting Kofi's knee and making Woods watch. Roman told Xavier to show up next week and see what a real King looks like.
