'''AUGUST 2006:''' [[Jared]] broke his right wrist on 14 August 2006 during the filming of [[2.03 Bloodlust]]. In the scene where he was attacked by vampires, he broke a bone when he landed awkwardly on his hand. He did not have it x-rayed until a couple of days later, when they had already started filming the next episode - [[2.04 Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things]] - so he couldn't wear a cast until the following episode. They wrote in the line for [[Sam]], "I think she broke my hand" after his fight with [[Angela Mason]] to explain Sam wearing a cast on his right arm in the episodes from [[2.05 Simon Said]] until [[2.11 Playthings]]. He had surgery on it during the filming of [[2.06 No Exit]].
[ Kripke talked about the injury in a TVGuide interview]:
:''' How are you coping with Jared Padalecki's injury and working that into the story?'''
:'''Kripke:''' Ah, Jared. We're making it work. Luckily, he gets in fights every episode so it is easy for him to break his hand. It turns out the zombie breaks his hand. I'm glad he's OK, and I'm glad it all worked out, but I do have to say there is a part of me that wished he broke his hand a little earlier because it would have made so much more sense to come out of the car crash with the broken arm. He survived getting T-boned by a semi going full speed, but a zombie broke his hand? We do what we always do — we made a joke out of it and we had Dean give a funny reaction. Not once does it get in the way of the story.
'''OCTOBER 2012:''' Some hotel room wrestling during [[Salute to Supernatural Toronto 2012]] between Jared, Jensen and Misha. Jensen ended up with carpet burn on his forehead and chin that were visible during [[8.09 Citizen Fang]]. In the episode, Dean gets hit on the head and so fake blood is used to cover the wound. It was still visible during [[Salute to Supernatural Chicago 2012]]. Jared and Misha had fractured ribs, and Misha's elbow "popped" and was expected to take six to eight weeks to heal.
