O'Brien bruised his face after falling from the Philip Hobbs-trained Triggerman three fences out in a novice chase.
He was out of action on Tuesday, but his agent Dave Roberts expects him to be back soon.
"He's okay," Roberts said on Wednesday morning. "It's just a bruised face and I expect him to be back in the next couple of days."
O'Brien has ridden 56 winners this season and sits in fifth in the jockeys' championship table.
