Jimmy Fallon ‘almost rips finger off,’ puts ‘Tonight’ show on hold

    "Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon tweeted this photo along with, "Tweeting with one hand." on Friday after injuring his hand in a fall.

NEW YORK » "Tonight" show host Jimmy Fallon is on the shelf following a hand injury that required minor surgery Friday and forced NBC to cancel a taping of late-night TV’s most popular program.

Fallon tweeted Friday that he tripped and when he caught his fall his ring caught on the side of a table and "almost ripped my finger off."

"I’m doing well and thanks for good wishes everyone," he tweeted.

He has some built-in recovery time since the show was scheduled to be on hiatus for the next two weeks anyway.

"Tonight" was supposed to have Benicio Del Toro, Taylor Kitsch and Penn & Teller as guests Friday. NBC is airing a rerun instead.
