Amy Purdy Injures Back at 'DWTS'; Updates Fans From The Hospital

Amy Purdy might not have danced in the team dance tonight, but JJJ is still hoping she’ll be back in the ballroom next week.

After performing a show-stopping rumba with pro partner Derek Hough and getting their scores, the 34-year-old athlete suffered a very painful back injury.

“Couldnt miss our q&a, I have a friend tweeting 4 me but Im here 2 answer ur Qs from the hospital!” Amy tweeted from her bed at the hospital.

She added, giving fans an update on the situation, “As we walked away from the judging table my upper back cracked & went into pain but I’m in good hands…Can not believe I had to miss the #TeamDance…thank you to all of you for your kind words and support.”

Amy and Derek, who scored a 36 points out of 40, are expected to dance a Paso Doble next week.

Get well soon, Amy!

Hope amy gets better, but I don’t think she should continue in the competion.she could hurt herself again more seriously.
