Chmerkovskiy sustained a calf injury in rehearsal on Friday and had to cheer on Alan Bersten — who filled in as his replacement — and celebrity partner Heather Morris as they competed in week 2. The father of one disclosed that he will be missing next week’s show and isn’t certain when he will return to the reality dancing competition series.
On Tuesday, Chmerkovskiy shared on Instagram that he’s taking his rehab one step at a time. “Please rest assured that I’m taking this thing very seriously and, although I don’t have a concrete return date, I’ll give it my all!” he wrote.
Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays (8 p.m. ET) on ABC.
