According to his official Facebook fan group, The 'Dancing With the Stars' contestant went to Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles after suffering from some foot pain. His partner, professional dancer Karina Smirnoff, was also there for moral support.

Doctors performed an X-ray followed by an MRI that showed the Apple co-founder had a fracture, but the good news is he will continue dancing. The doctors told him he could dance as long as he wears a removable cast and watches his foot.

The Woz told doctors he loves being on 'DWTS' because he really "loves being a part of such a good and important thing."

After he left the hospital in a cast, the Woz and Smirnoff went back for a little practice, and he's hard at work today as well.

The Woz promises his next dance will be "wild and fast and all-over and crazy and fun, just like the first one."
