E! Online is reporting that Cristián de la Fuente will continue with the show tonight, despite the recent serious injury to the tendon in his left arm.
“This Monday we will be dancing,” de la Fuente said Sunday night at the15th annual Race to Erase MS gala benefiting the Nancy Davis Foundation for Multiple Sclerosis in Los Angeles. “We have the tango and the mambo.”
Even so, de la Fuente will eventually undergo surgery. “They have to reattach the tendon to the bone,” he said. “They put you to sleep, do the surgery and then you have a month and a half recovery.”
Fellow DWTS contestant football star Jason Taylor is lending a hand, too.
“He called the Miami Dolphins, and they sent two braces,” de la Fuente said. “It’s with metal so that helps the arm not move into a direction I don’t want it to.” (Source: E! Online)
