Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars contestant Melissa Rycroft suffered a head and neck injury during rehearsals for Monday's episode, a rep for the reality TV star confirmed Sunday to PEOPLE.

"Melissa was taken by ambulance to a local hospital where she is currently being examined," the rep said. "She was accompanied to the hospital by her husband, Tye Strickland, and her dance partner, Tony Dovolani. Everyone is taking all necessary precautions at this time."

Rycroft -- who previously competed on season 8 of ABC's top-rated show -- "fell while doing camera blocking for Monday's group number at CBS studio," according to the report.

Her future with the show remains to be seen. An update is likely to be made during Monday night's telecast, which will have each contestant perform two different routines.

This isn't the first time Rycroft -- who has a daughter, Ava Grace -- has suffered a Dancing-related injury; in season 8, she hurt her ribs, preventing her from performing during an episode.

Eight All-Stars remain on this season of Dancing, which airs its latest episode Monday night at 8PM ET.
