"Avengers" star Jeremy Renner injured on set of Atlanta-filmed "Tag"

Jeremy Renner's ready to get to work on "Avengers: Infinity War," filming this summer in Atlanta, and says an injury he sustained working on another locally filmed project won't slow him down.

During a press conference at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival in the Czech Republic on Friday, Renner said he'd fractured his right elbow and his left wrist recently while filming “Tag,” a comedy about former classmates who reconnect for a cross-country road trip, Variety reported.

He posted photos a few weeks ago showing himself getting fixed up:
