WWE has not updated on Rusev’s status for Elimination Chamber as of 5:49 PM EDT.
He didn’t work weekend live events but he was pulled shortly after the injury at Tuesday’s Smackdown taping. Based on the fact he was seen on crutches the day after the injury, it wouldn’t be hard to make several assumptions but again, WWE has not updated his status. The only concrete update is he suffered a lower body injury while working Ryback.
Rusev has continued to progress his storyline breakup with Lana on Twitter.
Below are the tweets:

We’ll have complete Elimination Chamber coverage beginning tonight at 7:00 PM EDT.
