Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has been hospitalized with a blood clot in his right leg, about a month after tearing his Achilles tendon while jogging.

Snyder spokeswoman Sara Wurfel says the 56-year-old governor was admitted to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital near Ann Arbor late Thursday morning. The governor had noticed swelling in his leg, and doctors determined it was a blood clot.

Snyder has been recovering for about a month from a torn right Achilles tendon he sustained while vacationing in Florida.

Wurfel says Snyder is "doing well" and is in "good hands." It wasn't immediately known how long the governor will be hospitalized.

Wurfel says Snyder is canceling appearances scheduled in coming days but is still planning to unveil his proposed budget to the Legislature next week.
