Jodie Sweetin was hospitalized after an ankle injury during a "Dancing With the Stars" rehearsal Thursday with her professional dance partner Keo Motsepe.

It was the third injury to a "Dancing With the Stars" cast member during the Season 22 competition, reported E! News. Nyle DiMarco, of "America's Next Top Model," needed stitches for a cut and professional dancer Mark Ballas hurt his back while working with his partner, pro fighter Paige VanZant.

"Earlier today, Jodie Sweetin injured her left foot during rehearsals for 'Dancing With the Stars,'" Sweetin's rep said. "She was taken by ambulance to a local hospital and she is awaiting her official diagnosis. She is in good spirits while she waits and Keo, along with her fiancée Justin Hodak, are by her side."

"Entertainment Tonight" noted that Candace Cameron, Sweetin's co-star on "Fuller House," injured her foot during Season 18 of "Dancing With the Stars" but managed to continue and finished in third place that season.

An ABC rep said that it was up in the air if Sweetin would be able to compete on the live show Monday, where the contestants will do their favorite pop culture dances, according to the website TV Line,  

"Sweetin – who, with Motsepe, has been in danger of elimination twice during Season 22 – received high marks last Monday for her Switch-Up Night paso doble with Val Chmerkovskiy," said TV Line.

Before the injury, Sweetin told People magazine that she was looking forward to the competition on Monday.

"There are so many iconic dance moments that I would love the chance to pay homage to," Sweetin said to People. "This show is just allowing me so many opportunities to live out big dreams."
