The Oscar-winning actor was apparently hurt while training with a horse during pre-production of Tarantino's "Django Unchained" but is expected to make a full recovery.
Waltz, 54, won a best supporting actor Oscar for his work in Tarantino's "Inglorious Basterds."
People magazine said Saturday Waltz's injury did not disrupt the production calendar for "Django," but it did prevent him from attending Friday's premier of his movie "Carnage" at the New York Film Festival.
