Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder was hospitalized Thursday to undergo treatment for a blood clot in his leg.

A post on the governor's Facebook page indicated that Snyder is "in good health" and that the clot is "part of the lingering effects of his Achilles injury."

"The governor’s mobility may be limited, but he is still very much hard at work reinventing Michigan," the post read.

The Republican lawmaker tore his right Achilles tendon while jogging last month.
