‘Dancing with the Stars” DeMarcus Ware dislocated his finger, and these videos are definitely not for the squeamish

DeMarcus Ware has a big problem on his hands — or in his finger rather.

The “Dancing with the Stars” contestant dislocated his right index finger Tuesday while rehearsing his trio routine with his partner Lindsay Arnold and Season 24 champ Rashad Jennings. Don’t believe him? Don’t worry, he’s got proof. The Super Bowl champ posted two videos of his grisly injury while the three were en route to the urgent care. If you’re queasy about this stuff, then keep scrolling and do not press play below because his finger is bending in a direction it’s definitely not supposed to.

Don’t let his pearly white smile fool you because “this hurts so freakin’ bad right now,” Ware said, but you “can’t break this smile.”

SEE Did DeMarcus Ware get screwed over by the judges on ‘Dancing with the Stars’?

“We’re gonna go pop this thing in and I’m gonna get back on the dance floor,” he declared. That he did. The doctor popped his finger back in — and yes, he’s got footage of that exact moment too.

And then it was back to went right back to rehearsal. “Like we never missed a beat,” Arnold said in her Instagram Stories. “Back at it with our cute purple bandaid!”

The former linebacker is the fourth celebrity to sustain an injury this season. Nikki Glaser hurt her back before the premiere, Nancy McKeon fractured her foot last week, and Milo Manheim pulled his hamstring over the weekend. That did not stop him from backflipping off the judges’ table though. Given how Ware treated his injury like a random paper cut, we expect him crush it next week like this never happened.
