In an Instagram clip, Champion revealed that he hurt his knee earlier this week.
He said he didn’t notice the extent of his injury until he realized his knee was swollen.
Champion said: “I can’t really walk and can’t stand very well.”
The weatherman revealed that the pain made it difficult for him to sleep.
Champion shared a selfie from New York’s HSS Sports Medicine Institute West Side and told fans that he was awaiting an MRI scan on his knee.
Fans rushed to wish Champion a speedy recovery while Roker posted a witty comment.
The Today star posted: “If you knee-d a second opinion, gimme a call, Sam.”
Shirleen Allicot, the co-anchor of the WABC show Eyewitness News, said she was “glad” the weatherman got his knee checked out.
Dozens of fans have said they hope Champion’s injury is nothing serious.
One viewer joked: “You [should] just sit back and let people wait on you for a change!”
Champion revealed that doctors told him that some sort of motion “triggered” the injury.
He said doctors told him he had arthritis in his knee that he didn’t previously know about.
Champion updated viewers as he said the swelling has reduced by around three-quarters.
His injury comes just months after fellow GMA star Lara Spencer underwent surgery.
Spencer wore a protective boot for weeks on air following an operation.
She told fans that a torn plantar plate and ligament had slowly been getting worse before the operation.
The daytime TV star used a pink scooter to help her get around the studio.
She jazzed up the transport, covering the handlebars with crystals and adding tassels.
She revealed that the scooter had become “quite an attraction” on the GMA set.
Champion was seen horsing around with Spencer on her scooter.
The popular meteorologist originally left GMA in 2013 but came out of retirement in 2019.
In an Instagram Live clip last month, Champion told fans that he works “four days a week.”
He added: “But that’s because I came out of retirement.”
Champion explained that he returned because he was a “little bored and Channel 7 offered me the option and I didn’t want to work a full week.”
