"Melissa Rycroft suffered an on set injury during yesterday's Sunday camera blocking rehearsal and was immediately taken to the hospital," the network said in a statement. "We can confirm Melissa was diagnosed with a disc herniation at the C4-C5 level of her cervical spine."

The former "Bachelor" contestant's "DWTS" fate is still unknown.

"At this time, Melissa's ability to perform in tonight's show will be a show time decision," said ABC.

Earlier today (Oct. 22), Rycroft thanked fans for their support.

"Thank you so much for sending your prayers," she tweeted Monday (Oct. 22) morning. "Still seeing and talking to docs this AM, will give more details soon, but thanks for your love!"

Her pro partner, Tony Dovolani, also weighed in: "Thank you all for your prayers," he wrote, adding, "Melissa Rycroft's health is the most important to me! So fingers crossed that she's ok."
