Dancing with the Stars pro Kym Johnson was rushed to an L.A. hospital Friday afternoon after taking a nasty spill during the show's rehearsals. The 34-year-old is the professional partner of NFL star Hines Ward, and the two have received increasingly positive reviews from the judges throughout the season.

Johnson's rep told TMZ she was hospitalized for "precautionary measures to assure she is OK."

Whether Johnson's injury will affect her and Ward's routines on Monday night has yet to be determined.

Just last week, DWTS contestant Ralph Macchio suffered a ruptured cyst behind his knee and tendonitis. But injured and unrehearsed, the Karate Kid star danced through the pain in Monday night's competition; fortunately for Macchio, 21-year-old Romeo got the boot on Tuesday!
