You may have noticed that The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon hasn’t been on in a few weeks, and that’s because Fallon has spent more time than you might think in an ICU for a HORRIFIC finger injury he suffered back in late June.
We heard it was a hand injury when reports first surfaced, and most of us probably didn’t think it was that serious. In reality, Fallon very nearly lost his ring finger. It took a six-hour microsurgery involving removing a vein from his foot and relocating it to his finger, plus 10 days in the ICU to save it. He still won’t get feeling back in his finger for eight more weeks.
