It wasn’t clear exactly when Gilbert hurt herself during ABC’s dancing competition.
Host Tom Bergeron announced during the broadcast that the 47-year-old "Little House on the Prairie" star had “injured herself” and was being rushed to the hospital as a “precaution.”
Moments earlier judge Bruno Tonioli had called Gilbert’s paso doble to The White Stripes' "Conquest" her "best performance by far."
Gilbert wrote in her exclusive People blog before Monday's show that "this week of 'Dancing' has been a killer."
She has also reportedly sustained a burn on her ankle, as well as various cuts, scrapes and sore muscles during her time on “Dancing.”
