    Jimmy Fallon took to social media to give his fans an update about his “minor surgery” after the “Tonight Show” host suffered a hand injury.

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

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

    He also tweeted a photo of his injured hand.

    The show had announced on Twitter that Friday's episode was canceled, and that fans would be contacted to reschedule their tickets.

    The show had already planned a two-week hiatus starting Monday.

    Fallon began his tenure on the “Tonight Show” on Feb. 17, 2014.
