The director of The Maze Runner, Wes Ball, has just shared an update with fans via Twitter, telling everyone a bit more about Dylan’s prognosis and what’s been happening the past few days:

“Well, it’s been a whirlwind of emotions these past few days. I’ve been overwhelmed with feelings of anger and sadness and guilt. But ultimately I find myself left with just a deep love and respect for Dylan. He is one tough cookie. I’m sorry for the grief this accident has caused his friends and family as well as my wonderful cast and crew. It’s scary seeing your friend get hurt, but fortunately, Dylan is going to be just fine. After a few weeks of rest and recovery he will be back up and running to finish our adventure together. All the best.”

Here’s Ball’s full tweet (below):

Whew. Well, that still sounds serious, obviously — but that is a relief.

Something tells us it could have been a LOT worse…

Above all, good luck and godspeed to Dylan on a safe, full, and fast recovery — you deserve the best!
