The injuries are really starting to pile up on this season of Dancing With the Stars. First Christie Brinkley was forced to make an early exit due to an injury just as Season 28 premiered, and now Ray Lewis will reportedly be doing to same.
Entertainment Tonight reports that NFL Hall of Famer Ray Lewis and his partner Cheryl Burke will be withdrawing from Monday's night's competition during the show tonight due to an injury Lewis sustained. So far, there are few details about how serious the injury is or whether the couple will attempt to remain in the competition after not performing this week.
As of yesterday, it seemed like the duo was still planning to compete if Burke's Instagram post is anything to go off of. In her behind-the-scenes photo, Burke was in full hair and makeup, and she wrote, “Hair courtesy of @kelseygusto, glam courtesy of @crabichuk, deep thought courtesy of the upcoming live show. #DWTS.” If the show was indeed planning to go on as of yesterday, that could mean that this was another last-minute injury sustained during rehearsals.
