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.
