Amy Purdy injury: Star hurts her back on 'Dancing With the Stars'

See also

Tonight was a new episode of "Dancing With the Stars" 2014. On this Monday night, Amy Purdy came out and was able to dance just fine but she actually ended up hurting her back. She did a great job on her first dance which was a rumba, but it made it where Derek and Amy wouldn't get to dance in their group dance.

Amy got injured during the dance. Erin Andrews noticed that something was wrong when she interviewed her. It is her back that hurts and medics were checking her out at first. After being seen by a medic, she came back to talk to everyone.

Derek said Amy was putting on a very brave face. Her shoulder has hurt for a while now. She said when she turned her head then her back cracked. It is even hard for her to breath at the moment. She will be going to the hospital.

Instead of doing her team dance then the judges will look at her dance and judge her based on what she did during the dress rehearsals. They will be able to see how she did and still give her a score. This has only happened one time before and it was to Melissa Rycroft. This could hurt her a bit but hopefully Amy did great on the dress rehearsals today.

Fans are looking for updates on her condition. At this time, she is probably still being taken to the hospital to get checked out. Derek Hough has not shared anything on Twitter about how she is doing yet. Amy has also been quiet on her Twitter since before the show tonight.

"Dancing With the Stars" is airing on Monday nights on ABC. Fans can't wait to see if Amy and Derek were able to make it through another week. The votes from tonight will count to see who goes home next week.

Update: Amy shares an update about her back.
