Derek Hough Gets Injured While Practicing For DWTS
Doesn’t it seem like Dancing with the Stars pro Derek Hough is always on the go? How does he manage it? Well, he is now about to take a break from it all after an accident that sent him to the E.R. Hough was caught on camera Wednesday night using a single crutch in Los Angeles. He explained matters in an Instagram post he uploaded that very day.
In the Instagram post, he put up a photo of his injured feet along with the caption, “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 a light and some stairs . I’m doing everything I possibly can to have a quick recovery and I’m determined to come back stronger than ever. I appreciate all the love and support, you guys are the best. And thank you to Mark, BC Jean and Corky Ballas for staying with me at the hospital until 2am. Love you. This is new territory for me , I’m usually able to work through injury but this one has literally floored me. But like I said before I’m determined to come back all guns blazing … soon!!! #setbackisasetupforacomeback”
A source first told E! News that the pro dancer suffered a broken toe as well as a severely sprained ankle and possible ligament damage during a rehearsal for the “DWTS” 10th anniversary reunion on Monday. Due to this injury, Hough ended up missing the special on Tuesday and has since resigned from his lead role in the Rockettes’ New York Spring Spectacular. It is unclear whether or not Hough can dance next Monday with his partner Nastia Liukin. For right now, though, Sasha Farber is practicing her until it’s determined if Hough is returning.
