Dancing With the Stars pro Kym Johnson was taken by ambulance to a Los Angeles area hospital Friday after falling and injuring her neck.

Johnson suffered the injury while practicing with her partner, Pittsburgh Steelers player Hines Ward, for Monday's performance show featuring the remaining four couples.

"After several tests, she was cleared by the medical staff, though she is bruised, sore and currently wearing a neck brace," the show says in a statement. "Kym plans to continue with Hines Ward in the competition and resume rehearsals as soon as possible."

This is the latest injury on the show. Last week actor Ralph Macchio hobbled through his waltz and cha cha routines because of a ruptured cyst behind his right knee.
