We just hope he'll be back on his dancing feet in no time!
As we reported, on Monday evening, Derek Hough was rushed to the ER due to an injury he got while rehearsing for Dancing With The Star's 10th anniversary special.

A source said he severely sprained his ankle, broke his toe, and sustained possible ligament damage.
So what does this mean for the dancer's future on the ABC show?
Well it's definitely uncertain.
Production insiders say that the 29-year-old is awaiting test results that will determine how severe the damage is, and how long he needs to recover.
This could mean that his current partner Nastia Liukin may need to be reassigned a new pro.
According to fellow pro and friend Mark Ballas:
"It sucks. It's unfortunate… Hopefully he's going to be OK. The MRI results will come in [today] probably and we'll know more, but we're just praying that everything's OK."
In the mean time, Liukin is currently rehearsing with replacement Sasha Farber until further notice.
ABC has not given an official statement regarding the Utah native's status.
We just hope Derek is getting the rest that he needs, and we eagerly await his return!
