"I'm feeling OK. I've been better, but I'm doing all right," he told host Carson Daly. The "Sucker" singer revealed that he cracked his rib after he took a "a spill on a bike" and suffered "a few other bumps and bruises," too.

"I just want to go ahead and say that, in case I'm not as physically enthusiastic as I usually am. But Blake [Shelton], please don't make me laugh as much, because it kind of hurts to laugh," Jonas joked.

 "You're just trying to get sympathy votes on this show. That's all you're doing," Shelton quipped. "It's a big, elaborate plan," Jonas added.

As OK! previously reported, Jonas was injured on Saturday, May 15, while filming a new show, but it's unclear what show he was working on. He was taken to a nearby hospital to treat the injury

In 2018, Jonas was injured during his "post-show workout" in Mexico; he showed fans a photo of his hand with a bandage on.
