"Rashad has been loving the tour so far and will be focusing on football for the month of July," the rep explained. "He plans rejoin the tour on August 1."

Morris, meanwhile, couldn't be happier to join the squad.

"Get ready! I'm back! Can't wait to join the #DWTStour July 9th-30th. Get your tickets now ?? @dancingabc," she captioned a post on Instagram on Tuesday.

Morris expressed interest in joining the tour during a Facebook Live interview with ET in May. 

"I would personally love to [do the tour]," she shared. I'm not against it, and I would really love to just dance on the stage one more time because [Maksim Chmerkovskiy and I] only had two shows where we got to actually dance together, which was really disappointing."
