Report: Tom DeLay hurt in ‘DWTS’ practice

Former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay says he injured his foot rehearsing for Season 9 of Dancing with the Stars.

The latest edition of the dance competition series is to premiere Monday.

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, People.com quoted DeLay as saying in a Twitter posting Tuesday.

No stress fracture. It's a pre-stress fracture. I live for another day, DeLay said in an update later in the day after he had his foot examined.

A show representative confirmed the injury to the magazine.
