The Sentinels player got hurt with a resistance band while working out and won't be able to practice the FPS for at least two weeks.
Sinatraa reveals nasty eye injury that will keep him off Valorant for weeks

Injuries in esports are perhaps not as common as physical sports, however, they can be career-threatening when they do happen. 

While Jay "Sinatraa" Won's journey as a Valorant player won't be stopped by his recent accident, it was enough for the former Overwatch pro to end up going to the ER, as the 20-year-old revealed an injury to his left eye obtained while working with a resistance band.


"Hit my right eye rly hard with a resistance band and had to go to the ER because I went fully blind for like 3 hrs, got lucky and only a lot of scratches, bruising/blood on my retina and they said I would most likely recover in a week or 2 so no streams boys," Sinatraa tweeted out.

In a follow-up tweet, Sinatraa said explained that he tried to curl the band, slipping from his feet, going straight for his eye in the process. He also shared a photo of the gruesome injury.

It's not difficult to see how a resistance band could generate enough speed or momentum to leave permanent damage to a person's eye, so we're glad to hear Sinatraa will have a speedy recovery.

As for what this means for Sentinels, it remains to be seen when will the First Strike event will take place, as Riot Game's first organised tournament for the Valorant scene, Sinatraa's team will definitely don't want to miss out.
