Burgess injured her knee during rehearsal for last week's group dance, leaving partner James Hinchcliffe with pro Jenna Johnson on Monday.
Fortunately, Hinchcliffe didn't let the setback affect his Halloween-themed performance, as he earned a perfect 30 for 30 score from the judges for his Suicide Squad routine.
While she might be sidelined, Burgess isn't completely out of the game, as she coached Hinchcliffe and Johnson during our rehearsal visit. The trio has become so close that a quick return from Burgess would actually be bittersweet for the ballroom warriors.
"It will be very sad to lose Jen being a part of our team," Burgess admitted to ET. "We got a great little chemistry going on. We have fun."
"I'll still be their number one cheerleader," Johnson said. "I'll be pushing for them the whole way."
Like Burgess, Gleb Savchenko also suffered a knee injury, taking him away from partner Jana Kramer. DWTS troupe member Alan Bersten will be filling in temporarily in Savchenko's absence.
"I don't know if Gleb's going to be OK, but it's not looking good," Kramer said in a recent SnapChat.
Doctors are keeping a close eye on Savchenko's injury, but show producers tell ET it's too soon to know if he'll be able to dance on Monday, so for now, he's helping Kramer as she continues to rehearse.
On Thursday, Kramer shared a photo on Instagram, showing Savchenko in the dance studio with his knee wrapped in a brace.
"This. Is. Not. A. Happy. Photo," the 32-year-old country singer wrote in the caption.
