Sheeran didn't provide any more detail than that, but there's a rumor going around, substantiated by a radio host who tweeted about it hours before Sheeran shared the photo on Instagram, that he was hit by a car while riding his bike.

"Hope what I'm hearing isn't true. Sources in LDN @edsheeran telling me he's been hit by a car while riding a bike.. Sending healing vibes," host Kent Small wrote.

Just a few hours after Sheeran shared about his accident, a source told Us Weekly that Gerard Butler was hospitalized "more than a week ago" following a motorcycle crash. According to the insider, Butler crashed after a car cut him off, and he was treated at a nearby hospital for "minor" injuries.
