Heyman also just tweeted that Fernando Nieve has a tear in his quadriceps muscle.
We already knew he was heading to the DL, as Cory Sullivan is en route to D.C. as I write this, but no one knew how bad the injury was.
I really feel bad for Nieve. He was getting a chance and making the most of it. And now he’s down with an serious injury.
