Notably, this is not the first injury to take place on the set of the next 007 film, causing a filming delay.
Last month the film's producers revealed that Craig would be having surgery on his ankle, stemming from an injury he incurred while filming. He had to be taken from Jamaica to the U.S. in order to get treatment.

Following the incident, a source close to the film production told The Sun that Craig was pretty upset about the whole ordeal.
"Daniel was suited and booted for one of the last scenes in Jamaica," the source stated. "He was sprinting during filming when he slipped and fell quite awkwardly."
"He was in quite a lot of pain and was complaining about his ankle," the insider continued, then adding that after he hurt himself, Craig threw his suit jacket on the ground" in anger.
In addition to Craig, the forthcoming 25th James Bond movie will star Oscar-winning actor Rami Malek as the film's villain.
Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Jeffrey Wright, Ana de Armas, Billy Magnussen will all also appear.0comments
