Eddie Cibrian Rushed to Hospital from 'Playboy Club' Set

Ouch! The actor injured his foot on the same day that NBC announced they were canceling his new series

Tuesday wasn't a good day for Eddie Cibrian. The star was injured on the Chicago set of The Playboy Club on the same day NBC announced it was canceling the low-rated period drama.

The handsome leading man, who's usually in the news for his marriage to LeAnn Rimes, injured his right heel while running down an alley at the West Side studio set, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The actor -- who plays lawyer Nick Dalton, a Playboy Club regular -- suffered a deep gash on his heel after it got caught underneath a 200-pound steel door, the source told the Sun-Times. Cibrian, 38, was rushed to Northwestern Memorial Hospital where he was treated for his injury. No further information about his treatment or stay has been released.

Although NBC announced Tuesday that it was canceling the show, which only aired three episodes to disappointing ratings and dismal reviews, the production company is continuing to film episodes until Oct. 10 in hopes that another network will pick up the sexy series.

And as if all that wasn't enough bad news for Cibrian, an alleged drunk driver crashed into his California home on Monday morning. Poor guy!
