Tom Delay Leaving DWTS

Tom Delay is leaving Dancing with the Stars. The former Republican congressman will reportedly announce the news on tonight’s episode.

His injuries have apparently left him with no choice but to drop out of the competition. Poor guy! Sources tell E! News Delay’s doctors advised him to sit out the rest of the season because of stress fractures in both of his feet.

Despite his doctors’ warnings, Delay danced the samba with his partner Cheryl Burke. But this is something that has been an issue since training for the show began.

A while back, Tom wrote on his Twitter, saying, "They put me in Latin shoes with high heels, and my toes almost fell off the first week. So I went to a podiatrist, and I got a little problem with my feet. A cortisone shot cured me up."

It’s still so early in the competition…will they be able to replace him so Cheryl can keep on dancing?? Find out tonight!
