People magazine confirmed that Cheryl’s injury was severe enough that a medic was called to the scene. From there Cheryl was carefully examined and in the end the medical professionals advised her to take the rest of the day off. At this point, hours before Monday night’s performance, it is unclear whether or not she will be able to dance.

Unfortunately, Cheryl was not the first pro dancer to be injured so far this season. The ballroom was the scene of the first injury, in which Peta Murgatroyd incurred an injury. It happened earlier this month during her tango performance with celeb partner Vernon Davis.
After the show, it was noted that the professional dancer was absent from the press line and she later admitted that she had to leave the set early due to her injury. About the situation, Peta tweeted: “Sorry everyone tonight on @DancingABC I was absent from our spots after our dance. I pulled my neck and had to run to therapy.”
She added, “Thanks for the concern. Love you all and I’m looking forward to next week xxxx.”
