Chmerkovskiy suffered a painful calf injury during rehearsals with his partner, Heather Morris, last week, and has been keeping his fans up to date on his recovery. After Monday's show, where Morris danced with Alan Bersten, Chmerkovskiy shared a video of himself wheeling around with a suitcase. "Ah'll bee buck!" he wrote.

The 37-year-old dancer appears to be getting medical attention from William A Seeds, M.D. of Seeds Orthopaedics amp Sports Medicine, who has also treated DWTS pros Artem Chigvintsev and Chmerkovskiy's fiancee, Peta Murgatroyd.
