Matt' s banged up with a displaced shoulder, it popped out," Vieura said. "So hopefully he' ll be on the mend soon."

According to

"Today" show publicist Megan Kopf said Lauer, who was wearing a helmet, separated his shoulder and was scheduled to have surgery Monday.

"He' s doing well, and we hope to have him back on `Today' later this week," Kopf said in an e-mail"
