When each season of Dancing With the Stars starts, there is a steep learning curve for the new contestants. With less than a week until the Season 17 premiere, rehearsals are in full swing — and apparently getting dangerous! On September 9, Keyshawn Johnson revealed that his pro partner Sharna Burgess was injured because of one wrong move.

“Ouch! I think I just broke my partner Sharna's nose!” he tweeted on Monday afternoon.

It seems like she recovered quickly, though. An hour later, she retweeted the message, writing, “We are all good :) just a little bump #accidentshappen.”

Aww, Sharna is such a good sport. This is her sophomore season as a DWTS pro and her first time dancing with an athlete. Last season, she took comedian Andy Dick through five eliminations, surprising everyone with his big evolution.

As for Sharna and Keyshawn’s Season 17 dynamic? It seems like a lot of fun. Late last week, the official Dancing With the Stars Instagram page posted a fun video of them during rehearsals, in which he tried to imitate her accent while she taught him new moves!
