People.com is reporting Dancing With The Stars pro Karina Smirnoff was hurt in rehearsals yesterday and had to be taken to the hospital. This is sad….let’s hope she’s going to be ok.
Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff were practicing a flip when something went wrong.
Smirnoff landed on the NFL pro Sunday, twisting her neck and banging her face, and she had to be taken to Cedars Sinai Medical Center for possible whiplash and a dislocated jaw, a source tells PEOPLE.
Jones and Smirnoff were set to perform the Lindy hop. If Smirnoff can’t compete, the show can provide a last-minute substitute pro, putting Jones – already behind frontrunners Zendaya and Pickler – at a severe disadvantage at this late date.
