The pro dancer partner of Jacoby Jones was rushed to hospital on Sunday after hitting her face and still feels 'a bit sore,' but assures viewers that she will return to the ballroom Monday night.
Karina Smirnoff had a nasty fall during "Dancing with the Stars" rehearsal Sunday, May 12. The pro dancer landed on her partner Jacoby Jones when practicing a flip, twisting her neck and banging her face. She was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center as a precaution for possible whiplash and a dislocated jaw.
"I was flying over Jacoby and I didn't get down enough so I landed right on my jaw," she detailed the incident to People in a video. "I tried to get up and I couldn't -- that scared me." Jacoby also said he's worried about her. "I'm more worried about that than this dance," the NFL player admitted.
Karina, however, apparently didn't suffer a serious injury as she said that she would dance on "DWTS" Monday night. "Hey guys! I did go2 the hospital +am still a bit sore but I'm going 2 b ok+ not dancing isn't an option. Excited4 2night +LOVE our dances," she tweeted.
Karina and Jacoby will dance a Lindy Hop.
