“Dancing With the Stars” pro Derek Hough has an injury, according to the show's Twitter page on Oct. 28. Though few details have been shared online, it seems it is possible Derek won't be able to dance with his partner Amber Riley Monday night. This is not good news for Derek and Amber fans, but they'll be holding out hope the team can still wow the fans and judges to ensure they move on to week 8.
Monday afternoon the show's page tweeted, “#DWTS Update: Due to an injury, there is a chance @derekhough will not be dancing tonight. Stay tuned.” Who will step in if Derek can't dance? According to the ever-reliable @DWTSGossip, Henry is ready to step in and dance with Amber if necessary.
This isn't the first time Derek has had an injury that caused him issues come showtime, and “Dancing With the Stars” fans know he'll do his best to dance if he can. There is no doubt that he's prepared Henry well to dance with Amber if it comes to that. Just what happened to Derek? It looks like it may be an issue with his back again, as over the weekend he posted a photo on Moby Picture of something going on that looked painful.
At least one team will be eliminated at the end of Monday's show, and fans certainly hope Derek's injury doesn't put his team at risk for heading home. Tune in to “Dancing With the Stars” Monday night on ABC to see if Derek Hough's injury will keep him off the dance floor Monday night, and see who is next to head home.
