|A little job advice, please? :)

Ok. This will probably be confusing, but I can't help it. I'm recovering from a head injury. ;)|
So, I'm currently employed at Subway. However, for the past month, I've been going through the interview/pre-hiring process at a local bank. Throughout the entire process, I've told both companies that if I get the job at the bank, I'd give my two weeks notice at my current job.
Tomorrow (Monday) I have my (hopefully) final interview at the branch I'd be working at. If I get offered the job, I'm assuming training would start the next Monday, although that doesn't really matter in the context of my question.
In the middle of all this going on, something happened. This past Monday, while riding my bike to work, I got hit by a van. I have been unable to return to work since. I am getting better, but it'll probably be another full week or so before I can even consider going back to Subway. (To clarify, I've been plagued with lower back pain and hip pain since the accident. At Subway, I'd have to stand all day. At the bank, I'd be able to sit on a stool/chair.
So, my question is, considering the circumstances, if I'm offered a job at the bank during the interview tomorrow... Or, if it were you, would you call your current job and tell them you won't be returning (They've done well enough without me for a week now.), or would you STILL try to work an extra 2 weeks, therefore making it 3 weeks before you were able to start the new job?
I guess I'm a little scared that if I tell the bank it'd be 3 more weeks before I could start training, they may not hire me.
And this is all assuming I'm even ready to return to work by the end of this coming week.
This accident has totally turned my life upside down. :/
