Derek Hough has been dealing with a back problem for a while now and now has a injury again. On Oct. 28, US Magazine reported that he could end up not dancing tonight due to an injury. Will he make it on the dance floor?
A source says that Derek will need medical clearance before he can dance on the show tonight. It is still unknown if he was able to get it or not. He is there and in his dance outfit, but that doesn't mean that he will be on the dance floor tonight.
If Derek can't dance, Amber Riley will be dancing with Henry Byalikov instead. He is one of the pro dancers on the show and does know what he is doing, but of course he isn't Derek Hough. Amber shared dress rehearsal pics today but of course they didn't show who was on the dance floor with her at all. So far Derek hasn't been on Twitter at all today so they are leaving fans unsure of what is going to happen tonight.
Update: Derek was able to dance.
