The “Melissa & Joey” star also posted a photo showing his left eye swollen and closed shut.

Joey reportedly sought treatment immediately.
Later on Thursday he Tweeted, “Thank you for all your well wishes my tweeters! I’m in some pain right now but trying to heal quickly.”
The former child star will reportedly be back at work tonight.
