According to the New York Post, Moynihan took a nasty spill off the stage while playing Ford and sprained his ankle.

The injury was reportedly bad enough to force the 36-year-old actor to miss Sunday’s premiere of Delivery Man.

WATCH: See Bobby Moynihan as Rob Ford on SNL

The SNL spoof of Ford included a scene where Moynihan fell onto a podium during a press conference.

On Sunday, the mayor was asked if he saw the sketch. “Yeah, it’s crazy, man,” he replied.

Meanwhile, the brother of Chris Farley — the former SNL star who passed away in 1997 — weighed in on Monday.

“I think it’s safe to say that my  brother would have crushed playing the Rob Ford guy on SNL,” tweeted Kevin Farley.
