(Newser) – Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay was injured today in rehearsal for ABC’s Dancing With the Stars, he writes on Twitter—though an injury he says he initially feared was a stress fracture in his foot isn’t quite that serious. “It’s a pre-stress fracture. I live for another day,” he wrote; an ABC rep tells People doctors will decide if the Republican is healthy enough to make the show’s Monday season premiere.
