Former Beverly Hills, 90210 star Jason Priestley sustained a concussion after falling off a horse on the set of his upcoming series The Code, the actor announced Wednesday on Twitter.

“Hey guys, thanks for all the kind words,” Priestley wrote. “It’s true, I did get thrown off a horse on set … I got my bell rung pretty good.”

He continued, “Because I have a history of concussions, they took me to see a neurologist for an assessment. He advised I take a few days off as I had suffered a concussion.”
