ricki lake dwts injury Ricki Lake injured at 'Dancing With the Stars' rehearsal, completely fineDerek Hough runs a strict dance floor.

With little less than two weeks to go before the Season 13 premiere of “Dancing With the Stars,” the ABC series’ winningest pro has an injured partner on his hands.

Ricki Lake banged up her shin during a Wednesday rehearsal — though not so badly that she couldn’t document her first war wound on Twitter.

She posted a picture of her bruised shin, which she followed up with a reassuring shot of her stoic smile next to co-stars Hough, J. R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff.

None of this has kept her from rehearsing, though. “I’ve got my work cut out for me,” she posted to Season 12 runner-up Kirstie Alley. “Channeling ya’ mama.”

This shouldn’t affect her current odds of winning, which, we’ve got to say, we think have been terribly underestimated.
