Along with a photo on Instagram.com showing himself with his left arm in a blue sling, Lopez writes, "Well... Tore my rotator cuff. Terribly inconvenient... Waiting to see if I need surgery. Got a cortisone shot & IV with dilaudid and it still hurts. Buzzin like a chainsaw though.. Not being able to train is gonna make me crazy! Too hyper, need to burn it off..."

The Extra host later added that he was recovering in bed with the help of pain medication Percocet.
