Eddie Cibrian was hurt Tuesday night on the Chicago set of The Playboy Club, according to a report, adding injury to insult on a day when NBC canceled the much-maligned period drama.

Cibrian, 38, the husband of country singer LeAnn Rimes, suffered a deep gash on his right heel after he caught it under a 200-lb. steel door, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital. No other details were available.

NBC announced Tuesday that it was canceling the show, which premiered to poor reviews and tepid ratings on Sept. 20 and nosedived in viewership over the next two weeks. The network is continuing to film, however, reportedly hoping to sell the series to another network.

Cibrian plays the male lead, Nick Dalton, a lawyer and Playboy Club keyholder.
