'DWTS': Jordan Fisher Pulls out of Finale Practice Due to Injury

Jordan Fisher has always been considered the one to beat on season 25 of Dancing with the Stars, but now the Broadway star has been sidelined by a scratched cornea - and a source tells PEOPLE the injury caused him to leave rehearsal early Tuesday to seek treatment.

"His eye is looking worse and he left rehearsal early to go to the doctor", a source told People.

The injury may not seem major, but Fisher seemed visibly affected by it.

On top of powering through Lindsay's knee injury, Jordan also suffered an eye injury just hours before the live broadcast. In a pre-taped video, the pro opened up about how her knee gave out during practice and she made a decision to go ahead anyway but was afraid it would happen again.

"Light hurts, blinking hurts, keeping my eyes open hurts, it's hard to see but it's just one of those freak things", Fisher said.

Jordan added, "It's definitely been the hardest couple of days in the competition but we're grateful that we've been able to cap these couple of days off like a pirate with one good leg and one good eye still managing to make a trip to the finals".

She then fought back tears as she continued, "It's frustrating because it's the semifinals, and I want to dance it with Jordan".

For their second performance of the evening, Fisher and Arnold perfectly recreated a jive performance set to "Proud Mary" by Tina Turner, which was originally performed by Paige VanZant and Mark Ballas in Season 22 of the hit ABC dance reality show.
