Following last week’s performance during Spring Break week on Dancing With the Stars, where he and his celebrity dance partner, Nastia Liukin scored 34/40 dancing to the Tango, Hough took a trip to the hospital. The professional dancer injured both of his feet while rehearsing for the DWTS 10th anniversary special, set to premiere on Tuesday, April 28, 2015.

Speculation began last week following a post on Instagram that Hough put up but then immediately took down. He later posted another photo with the following message:

“Performing 10 shows a week at Radio City while rehearsing with Nastia for DWTS, I’ve never felt more healthy, strong and fit. But then a fluke accident happened that involved a light and some stairs. Can’t believe it, wish I had a cooler story to tell. All that dancing, flipping, jumping and the thing that stops me in my tracks is something as simple as light and some stairs.”

Derek revealed on Good Morning America, he can sort of “wobble around” but he cannot dance. Standing in for Hough will be professional dancer Sasha Farber.

In an official statement from Hough’s rep they said he had “sprains to his left ankle on both the inside and outside aspects and a bone bruise on the same ankle. He was also diagnosed with a broken toe on his right foot.

Is Derek Hough down and out for the rest of the season or is it for this week only? Something tells us this injury is very serious and he will be out for a few weeks at best?

This week on Dancing With the Stars the theme is Era Night. Nastia Liukin and Sasha Farber will be dancing a modern charleston. We will be recapping live – so be sure to bookmark us and come back and see how Nastia and Sasha did.
