DWTS Danica McKellar cracks rib during practice

Danica McKellar Breaks Rib In 'DWTS' Rehearsal

We're officially past the midway point on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars", and another celebrity has fallen victim to the curse that has haunted other contestants.

Danica McKellar tweeted out Friday that she'd broken a rib during ballroom practice with her partner Val Chmerkovskiy.

You might remember McKellar as Winnie Cooper from ABC's "The Wonder Years".

And this injury really doesn't sound good for McKellar's future on the show.

Especially when you consider that a fractured rib can cause pain when breathing as well as severe pain in the injured area, as WebMD points out.

And it seems that McKellar's injury is putting a toll on the dancing duo. Chermokvskiy tweeted that it has been a "Very very tough week" so far.

It's understandable. The couple scored a stellar 36 out of 40 for their cha-cha routine last week and the judges on the tweet is anything to go by, it seems we might be. McKellar says she's crossing her fingers that she'll be able to pull off her routine.
