Jimmy Fallon Injuries

Jimmy Fallon's Freak Injuries Sparked 'Conversations' With NBC Brass

If you’re concerned about Jimmy Fallon, following the string of injuries he suffered in 2015, you’re not alone.

“We’re always worried about his safety and health,” NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt told reporters Wednesday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour. “Yeah, there have been conversations about that.”

If you’re not up to speed with the Tonight Show host’s recent medical history, he nearly lost his finger in June (in a kitchen mishap), chipped his tooth in August and injured his hand in October (after tripping and falling onto broken glass).

That said, Greenblatt wanted to clear up one apparent misconception about Fallon: “He doesn’t have a drinking problem that any of us know about. He goes out and has fun and he’s had some accidents. Aside from that, I think he’s in better shape than he’s ever been in.”
