Actor Eddie Cibrian was taken to the hospital on Tuesday night after suffering a leg injury while filming The Playboy Club in Chicago, has learned.

Ironically, he was injured on the same day it was announced that the NBC period drama was cancelled due to poor ratings.

LeAnn Rimes’ husband hurt his right heel while running down an alley on the show's set and was taken to the Northwestern Memorial Hospital for treatment, reported the Chicago Sun-Times.

The 38-year-old received a deep gash on his heel after it got caught underneath a 200-pound steel door, a source said.

the show's production company plans to continue filming until October 10 in the hope that another network will pick it up.

As always, country singer LeAnn was quick to take to Twitter to update her followers on the news.

"My husband is hurt...stitches in his Achilles! going home.....nurse Le on the red eye :)" she tweeted late on Tuesday, and went on to give details about his condition.

"running down stairs... It's not pretty...he is (OK).... but he's messed up," and when asked by a follower if he was on crutches she replied: "no just HUGE stitches....when it rains it pours, but that means NOTHING but bed tmrw ;)"

Luckily LeAnn was in North Carolina at the time of the accident but tweeted her reaction later that day.
