Are Jewel's Dancing Days Tarnished?

The new Dancing with the Stars season hasn't even begun yet and it's looking like competitor Jewel may be out of the running.

The singer took to her blog yesterday to tell her fans that she's the victim of this season's first injury.

"I guess I really over did it on the rehearsal front!" the singer posted on Wednesday. "My knees have been hurting so badly that I finally broke down and talked to [husband Ty Murray] knee doctor yesterday."

So, what's the deal?

"He said I have tendonitis in my knees and that I have to start a course of medicine to try and bring the swelling down," she writes.

"I'm just worried I won't even be able to dance!" the singer continues. "Hopefully these steroids will really do the trick and I can keep bad flare ups at a [sic] bay in the future."

But, as the day went on, Jewel was feeling a little bit better about the situation.

"Yes it is true, I've had a minor setback in my training for Dancing with the Stars," she said in a statement later in the day. "But I am dedicated to getting better and showing the judges and America that I can cha-cha with the best of them. Don't count me out as I am in this for the long run."

Get well soon!
