The actor was away filming the latest installment of "Pirates of the Caribbean" at the time, but not on set.
Depp was seen Tuesday at Brisbane airport, arm in a sling, on a plane heading back to the states. The injury to his hand will require surgery, but he's expected out for only two weeks, according to 9 News in Australia.
The outlet added that “the film won’t be delayed too much," according to a Disney rep.
The Wrap adds that the film will still be released in 2017, also according to a Disney spokesperson.
From the airport pics, Depp, 51, isn't too worries about the injury and was waving to fans with a big smile on his face.
Filming on "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" started last month.
A request for comment from Depp's rep was not immediately returned to ABC News.
Disney is the parent company of ABC News.
