It's hard gauge his health from here, but he looks pretty good in the new photo, taken by 16-year-old Vanessa Denegri during her shift at the Jamba Juice in Sherman Oaks, CA. (FYI, O'Brien apparently picked up a couple of Kale-ribbean Breezes with Whey Protein. Now you know.)
Here's the photo she shared, blocking her own face because she didn't like how she looked:

O'Brien was hurt in mid-March while filming a stunt for "The Death Cure." He was reportedly wearing a harness on top of a moving vehicle when he was unexpectedly pulled off that vehicle and hit by another one. The Hollywood Reporter quoted a report from WorkSafeBC, describing the actor's injuries as "concussion, facial fracture and lacerations." The "Maze Runner" crew originally expected him to be back to finish the film within a "few weeks." But his publicist later updated to say his injuries were "very serious" and he needed more time to recover. That led the film to shut down production in late April.
But the film is still happening, if a year after-the-fact, and Comicbook added that O'Brien will also be in "Teen Wolf" Season 6. Showrunner Jeff Davis said his character, Stiles, "is a big part of the season because a lot of this season's mystery revolves around him."
"Teen Wolf" Season 6, the final season, premieres Tuesday, November 15. "Maze Runner: The Death Cure" is now scheduled for January 12, 2018.
