'DWTS' Pro Lindsay Arnold Suffers Knee Injury, May Be Unable to Compete

The partner of Jordan Fisher injures her knee 'during camera blocking rehearsal Sunday morning while working on a number with the troupe.'

AceShowbiz - "Dancing with the Stars" pro dancer %cLindsay Arnold%, who is partnered with %cJordan Fisher%, suffered knee injury during rehearsals on Sunday, November 12. The injury seemingly is serious enough to the point that it may be forcing her to skip Monday night's show.

"Lindsay injured her knee during camera blocking rehearsal Sunday morning while working on a number with the troupe," a "DWTS" source reveals. "Lindsay is hopeful she'll be cleared to dance tomorrow, but it will likely be touch and go until showtime Monday."

The source further says that fellow pro dancer %cSharna Burgess%, who was previously eliminated along with %cDerek Fisher%, is learning Lindsay's routines just in case Lindsay is unable to perform.

In a backstage video, Lindsay explains, "I was practicing the pro number and I literally just stepped up onto a stair and it felt like my whole leg gave out and stopped working." She adds, "I thought it was just a one-time thing and then it happened a couple more times, just doing simple things."

The 23-year-old former "So You Think You Can Dance" contestant later breaks into tears while saying, "It's frustrating because it's the semi finals and I want to dance it with Jordan, and I just hope this doesn't stop me from doing that."

Lindsay and Jordan are one of the frontrunners in the current season 25 of the ABC dancing competition show. The pair have wowed judges and audience numerous times as well as earned multiple perfect scores throughout the season.

Should Lindsay be okay enough to dance her way to the ballroom this Monday, she and Jordan will perform a new routine and an iconic dance from "DWTS" history. The couple is set to perform a Jive to "Proud Mary" by %cTina Turner% which was originally performed by mixed martial artist %cPaige VanZant% and %cMark Ballas% back in season 22.
