I was in an accident. but getting better getting cleared and gonna be back at work Tuesday they tell me And sorry bout Atlanta event I was looking forward to it. Most of all thank you for the eye in the dark messages I really loved that little cat,

Because of his popularity as Daryl Dixon, fans of the zombie series have extended their love from all around the world after word broke about his unfortunate accident.

Luckily, Reedus’ recovery progress seems to be going smoothly and fans can expect him back to the screen very shortly as The Walking Dead is set to wrap up its monumental run.
