Dancing With The Stars

Mark Ballas Injured During Dancing With the Stars 2013 Rehearsals… Again! (PHOTO)

Dancing With the Stars 2013 should be nicknamed The Injury Season. At the beginning of Season 16, Dorothy Hamill departed because of a spinal injury; later, Lisa Vanderpump fainted during rehearsals; Mark Ballas injured his back and broke his toe; and Karina Smirnoff hurt her jaw during a scary fall. And those are just the documented injuries — we’re sure many more happened that we don’t know about.

Now it looks like someone is hurt again, and it is Mark’s third injury this season! Yesterday, he showed off his “battle wounds” on the official DWTS Instagram. From the looks of it, he’s just bruised up, maybe from a fall, but his knee is in a brace, too. Hopefully he’ll recover before tonight’s Finals!

Mark is notorious for pushing himself to his limits, something he has in common with fellow pro (and BFF) Derek Hough. Will that be enough to win him the Mirror Ball with Aly Raisman? We’ll have to wait and see.

Are you surprised that Mark injured himself again? Sound off below!

Dancing With the Stars airs tonight, Monday, May 20, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
