As OK! recently reported, Jonas sustained an injury while filming for an unknown project and was taken to the hospital on Saturday, May 15. He reportedly returned home the following day, just in time for the Monday, May 17, episode of The Voice. During the episode, the coach addressed his accident, confirming he cracked his rib and suffered "a few other bumps and bruises," after taking "a spill on a bike."

And on Wednesday, May 19, the Jonas Brothers bandmate finally revealed the mysterious project in question, an NBC show for the Olympics called Olympic Dreams.

While talking to Extra’s Jenn Lahmers, Jonas explained: "Me and the brothers [Joe and Kevin Jonas] are competing against each other in Olympic sports, and one of the events required me riding a bicycle. Basically, I lost control of the bike and flipped off of it, kind of ugly."

NBC's Olympic Dreams Featuring Jonas Brothers is an hourlong special that pits the brothers against one another with the help from the country's top athletes. The show is set to premiere on Wednesday, July 21 — two days before the Opening Ceremony for the Tokyo Summer Games.

Despite Jonas' nasty fall, he insisted he is feeling better and has been taking care of himself. "I do feel really good… Just been getting rest when I am not on The Voice sitting in my chair," the handsome hunk said. "Honestly, I feel really fortunate, feel really good." Since there is nothing to "really do" about a broken rib, Jonas told Lahmers he is just going to "wait it out and deal with some of the pain." 

While in recovery, Jonas is gearing up to host the Sunday, May 23, Billboard Music Awards. Jonas admitted he's been a "fan" of the awards show for as long as he could remember, sharing: "[It] has always been one of my favorites."

Meanwhile, Jonas is handing over his coaching chair on The Voice to newlywed Ariana Grande — who tied the knot with hubby Dalton Gomez over the weekend. While discussing her new position, Jonas expressed his support for the pop star, insisting: "She's gonna crush it."

As for her marriage, Jonas couldn't be more excited for the "7 rings" singer. "Marriage is the best decision I ever made, so I am thrilled for them," he told the host.

Jonas and wife Priyanka Chopra got married in 2018 and welcomed a new addition to their brood last year — a puppy named Panda, who joined their two other pups, Gino and Diana.

When Jonas is not working on his upcoming Olympic show, filming for season 20 of The Voice and preparing for the awards show, he's been flying over the pond to see his wife.

Chopra has "been shooting a lot in the U.K., so I am kind of back and forth since the fall of last year and will continue through November," he explained of married life. "The days I have off, I will pop over back to be with her, see our puppies," he said, adding: "We always figure out how to make the schedules line up."

Hopefully the traveling and work doesn't interfere with Jonas' recovery, because he is also set to tour with his brothers this summer. The Jonas Brothers are heading on tour with Kelsea Ballerini, starting August 20 in Las Vegas, Jonas confirmed.

Being "back on tour with the guys with some new music for sure, outside, with our good friend Kelsea Ballerini" will be "the party of the summer," he concluded.
