UPDATE: People reports that Mark Ballas will be sitting out this week's episode of Dancing with the Stars after injuring his back during camera blocking on Sunday. His partner, UFC fighter Paige VanZant, will dance with So You Think You Can Dance contestant and Dancing troupe member Alan Bersten.
The back injury is an old one for Ballas that he aggravated while preparing for the team's second week. There's no word on when or whether Ballas will return.
