Ryan Phillippe "optimistic" two months after surgery on leg

UPI News Service, 10/20/2017 

Ryan Phillippe is feeling "optimistic" more than two months after having surgery on his leg.

The 43-year-old actor said he was "tired" but "grateful" in an update Thursday on Instagram after breaking his leg in a "freak accident" in July.

"tired - sore - optimistic - grateful," Phillippe captioned a mirror selfie. "I jogged on a trampoline today. not a big deal to most, but huge for me, just 2 + months after surgery & once faced with the prospect of not having a lower right leg at all..."

"i'm beyond thankful to my rockstar doctor & great therapists, my family & friends, fans, and co-workers who have been crucially supportive through one of the most difficult times of my life," he added. "a time that also confirmed for me that if you continuously look for it, being surrounded by apparent darkness can ultimately help you find your light...

"thanks to all. more good news coming soon," the star teased. "ily."

Phillippe announced July 17 that he "required surgical attention" after injuring himself at a "family outing," not on the set of his USA Network series, "Shooter."

"hey, guys. i didn't injure myself doing a stunt or anywhere near the set of shooter. i was the victim of a freak accident during a family outing," the actor tweeted at the time.

"my leg is badly broken & required surgical attention, but i will make a full recovery, am in good hands, and will be back in action soon," he promised. "thank you for all the well wishes, support, & concern."

"Shooter" completed a second season in September. The season was reduced from 10 to eight episodes due to Phillippe's injury.
