Kristin Chenoweth, who was hit in the head last month by a piece of lighting equipment while filming CBS' "The Good Wife," said she is leaving her recurring role as a political reporter because of the injury.

"It is with deep regret to inform everyone that due to my injuries, I am unable to return to 'The Good Wife' at this time,' " the actress said in a statement to People magazine. "[I'm] getting better slowly, and thank you everyone for your concern."

She was rushed to the hospital July 11 after a gust of wind blew a piece of lighting equipment out of place, striking her in the head as she was filming a scene on the Brooklyn set. She was released the following day.

UPDATE at 3:05 P.M.: A statement from CBS Television Studios, which produces "The Good Wife," said, "We enjoyed having Kristin on the show and would love to have her back when she's feeling better."
