Karina Smirnoff may not be moving and shaking on tonight's episode of Dancing With the Stars.

Jacoby Jones' pro partner is still recovering from injuries she sustained during a rehearsal Sunday, E! News confirms. 

"Yesterday, during rehearsal, while executing a flip, Karina landed on Jacoby and fell flat," a source tells us.

"She was taken to Cedars-Sinai hospital, where it was discovered that she had a severe strain to her neck, as well as jaw tissue damage and misalignment of her jaw, while experiencing excruciating pain," the source adds of Smirnoff. "She is in a neck brace. She was treated and released last night."

A rep for the hit ABC show adds, "We can confirm Karina was injured during rehearsal yesterday and was taken to the hospital as a precaution."

While the source tells us it's uncertain if she will perform tonight, the DWTS rep says, "She is scheduled to dance tonight."

Jones is one of just five stars left competing for the mirror-ball trophy. He is set to face off with Zendaya Colemen, Kellie Pickler, Ingo Rademacher and Aly Raisman.
