"F-k. It just feels like something hit it".

After injuring his calf during rehearsals with his partner Heather Morris on Friday, Dancing with the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy will be sitting out Monday night's show, according to Good Morning America.

Dancing With the Stars troupe member Alan Bersten will step in to dance with Morris tonight.

Being that we're only two weeks into the newest season of DWTS it's a little surprising and concerning that Chmerkovskiy has already suffered an injury so significant that he won't be able to perform. Tough show for #TeamMaksimumHeat and [Heather] would have to hold it down for both of us.

Chmerkovskiy wrote on Instagram, "Sorry I was MIA".

Heather Morris also chimed in on her Twitter account about the injury.

"Please show her your love and support while I work on getting my ass back to the ballroom".

Many could argue Maksim and Heather entered the competition with a leg up on their competitors because she previously competed on So You Think You Can Dance and served as one of Beyonce's backup dancer on tour. "In addition, this week I get to do a little snippet of the type of dancing I do best in this week's number". That being said, here's hoping Chmerkovskiy makes a speedy recovery! You start to see a little IV on a little baby and you're like, 'Oh my God, this is insane.' And then we had to travel and fly back to LA after this just happened.

"Dancing with Stars" airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.
