Will a Dancing With the Stars fan favorite be forced to leave the ballroom?!

The Wonder Years star Danica McKellar suffered an injury during rehearsals for Monday's episode of the ABC reality hit, breaking a rib while preparing for "Latin Night."

"So...I broke a rib in yesterday's rehearsal," McKellar revealed on Twitter on Friday. "Trying my best to pull thru and could use your prayers!! ."

McKellar's professional partner Valentin Chmerkovskiy also took to Twitter to address her injury, simply writing, "Very very tough week ."

The '90s TV star has been a consistent performer on the show: She and Chmerkovskiy almost scored a perfect 40 on "Disney Night" two weeks ago, and their most recent dance on "Party Anthem Night" landed them 36 out of 40 points. However, the pair found themselves in the bottom three couples, along with Full House's Candace Cameron Bure and Drew Carey, who ultimately ended up leaving the ballroom.

McKellar isn't the first Season 18 celeb to be seriously injured during the competition: Star Wars actor Billy Dee Williams was forced to quit DWTS after hurting his back during rehearsals in week two.

Here's hoping McKellar will be able to perform on Monday's "Latin Night," which will host Ricky Martin as the week's guest judge.

Dancing With the Stars airs Monday at 8 p.m. on ABC.
