Lindsey Stirling was injured on Sunday while rehearsing for “Dancing With the Stars,” leaving it unclear whether she will be able to continue on with the competition.

A spokesperson confirmed that Stirling suffered a rib injury while practicing on Sunday, one day before the ABC reality competition’s live performance show. Should she be unable to dance, Stirling would be forced to forfeit the competition.

In video obtained by TMZ, Stirling and her dance partner, Mark Ballas, await news about the extent of her injury and discuss their future in the competition.

“I push, push, push all the time. That’s how I’ve gotten to where I’m at,” Stirling says in the video. “But I’m just so afraid that I might have pushed too far.”

Stirling and Ballas were slated to perform two routines on Monday’s Halloween-themed episode — a Paso Doblé to Stirling’s own song “Roundtable Rival” and a group routine to “Monster Mash” by Bobby “Boris” Pickett.

“Dancing With the Stars” airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.
