Tom Delay Injured During DWTS Practice

The competition hasn't even begun yet on Dancing With the Stars and already somebody is on the D.L.

House Majority Leader Tom Delay is the first contestant to trip up and sustain an injury while practicing for the show's September 21st premiere.

The 62-year-old Twittered, "Old age is catching up to me, may have a stress fracture in my foot. no worries, it'll take more than that to keep me off the dance floor."

Two hours later he followed up with. "No stress fracture! It is a pre-stress fracture. I live for another day."

So, the politician is still in it, and his partner, Cheryl Burke, will have to continue her job of getting Tom show-ready in less than a week.

Anyone else think he'll be the first to go? Chime in below!
