(LOS ANGELES) — The show must go on for Karina Smirnoff and Jacoby Jones.
Despite injuring herself in practice on Sunday, the Dancing With the Stars pro tweeted Monday: “I did go 2 the hospital +am still a bit sore but I’m going 2 b ok+ not dancing isn’t an option. Excited4 2night +LOVE our dances.”
Still, the injury certainly looked frightening.
While practicing a flip, Smirnoff landed on top of the NFL player, twisting her neck and hitting her face. Afterward, she went to the hospital as a precaution.
Last week, when Bachelor star Sean Lowe was voted off, Jones and Smirnoff were in the bottom three. Monday night they will compete in the semifinals against Disney star Zendaya, Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman, country singer Kellie Pickler, and actor Ingo Rademacher, dancing the lindy hop.
