Actor Ryan Phillippe has posted a picture of himself laid up in a hospital bed with a broken leg following what he calls a "freak accident."

Phillippe wrote in the caption of his Instagram post that he's "going to be ok."

The picture shows him with a bandage on his leg and a swollen foot.

He later explained on Twitter that he broke his leg during a family outing Sunday and it required "surgical attention," but he will make a full recovery.

Phillippe responded to fan speculation that he hurt himself doing a stunt for his USA series Shooter, saying he wasn't anywhere near the set.
