On Thursday, McKellar was rehearsing with her dance partner when she broke one of her ribs. On Friday, she took to Twitter to tell her fans about her injury.
“So…I broke a rib in yesterday’s #DWTS rehearsal,” McKellar tweeted. “Trying my best to pull thru and could use your prayers!! #wanttokeepdancing,” she continued.
Danica is the first contestant to suffer an injury this season, aside from Billy Dee Williams having to withdraw due to a chronic back pain condition, and she hopes that this doesn’t set her back in the competition. She is currently sitting in third place going into Monday night’s show with her partner. She scored 36 out of a possible 40 points last week.

Despite her injury, Danica has still been practicing and is planning on dancing next week. “Had rehearsal today.. it’s tough dancing with a broken rib. @iamvalc choreographed an amazing routine- fingers crossed I can pull it off! :/,” she tweeted on Friday.
